Convert the numeral to a numeral in the base indicated. 16,629 to base 13
u know a method to corvert a decimal number to other base number?
oops.. sorry.. keep dividing the number by 13 and note down remainders.. and taking remainders from down to up.. right hexadecimal equivalents of them :P
16629 / 13 = 1279 1279 * 13 = 16627 16629 - 16627 = 2 16629 in base 13 is 7752 ?
damn i am sorry !! :(
? :D wait I'm not right :(
@vikrantg4 whats hexadecimal equivalent ?? u copied that from somewhere ?
your first step is correct @Esmy , u get the remainder=2
2nd step also correct, u get remainder = 5
3rd step correct, remainder = 7
I'm I correct over all :'D
another method would be to write down the exponential values of a base 13 system, and work it from there 13^4 13^3 13^2 13^1 13^0 28561 2197 169 13 1
Ohh :o okay that seems cool. Ill try that one in my next one :)
:) just to refresh my memory .... 16,629 is divisible by 13^3: 7 times , 1250 left over 1250 is divisible 13^2: 7 times , 67 left over 67 is divisible 13^1: 5 times , 2 left over \[16,629_{10}=7752_{13} \]
