Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0another 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

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0:) 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 \[16,629_{10}=7752_{13} \]
