Questions
1.
Base conversions
. Consider the following numbers, with the base specified as a
subscript. Find X with the given base, and show your mental process and work to get
to the final answers.
a.
312
5
= X
8
Convert from base 5 to base 10, then from base 10 to base 8.
(3 * 5^2) + (1 * 5^1) + (2 * 5^0) =
(3 * 25)
+ (1 * 5)
+ (2 * 1)
=
(75)
+ (5)
+ (2)
= 82
10
I find it easier to go through the binary, but you don’t have to.
82 = 64 + 16 + 2 = 1(010)(010) in binary = 122 on base 8
312
5
= 82
10
= 122
8
b.
56
10
= X
4
I find it easier through binary.
56 = 32 + 16 + 8 = (11)(10)(00) in binary = 320 on base 4
