Step 2: Multiply the obtained column values (in Step 1) by the digits in the
corresponding columns.
Step 3:
Sum the products calculated in Step 2. The total is the equivalent value in
decimal. Example 3.1.

Step 3: Sum the products
2048 + 448 + 0 + 6 = 2502 Hence, 47068 = 250210
Solution:
1AC16 = 1 x 162 + A x 161 + C x 16°
= 1x256+10x16+12x1
= 256+ 160+ 12
= 42810
Example 3.4.
40527 = ?,
Solution:
40527 = 4x73 + 0x72 + 5x7' + 2x7°
= 4x 343+ 0x 49+ 5x7 + 2x1
= 1372 + 0 + 35+2
= 140910 Column values 8° = 82 = = 1 = 8

= 512 Example 3.5.
40526 = ?10
Solution:
40526 = 4x63 + 0x62 + 5x61 + 2x6°
= 4x216 + 0x36 + 5x6 + 2x1
= 864 + 0 + 30 + 2
= 896,0
.
Comparing this result with the result obtained in Example 3.4, we find that although the
digits (4052) are same for both the numbers, but their decimal equivalent is different.
This is because of the fact that the number in Example 3.4 is represented in base 7
number system whereas the number in Example 3.5 is represented in base 6 number
system.
Example 3.6.
110014 = ?10
Solution:
Solution:
110014 =lx44+lx43 + Ox42 + Ox41 +

= 256 + 64 + 0 + 0+1
= 32110
Compare the result with Example 3.1.
Example 3.7.
IAC13 = ?10
IAC13= 1 x 132 + A x 131 + C x 13U
= 1 x 169+ 10x13 + 12 x 1
= 31110
Compare the result with Example 3.3.
