hey okay

5. dan815

are you still here

6. Pulsified333

@dan815 yes I am

7. dan815

okay so base 8 and base 10

8. Pulsified333

of? the numbers?

9. dan815

lets take an example in both bases okay first of all in base 10, the largest digit is 9 in base 8 the largest digit is 7

10. Pulsified333

okay

11. dan815

\[999_{10}=900+90+9= 9*10^2+9*10^1+9*10^0\] \[777_8=700+70+7=7*8^2+7*8^1+7*8^0\] notice the double 0s in 700 is different meaning in base 8 as ud expect

12. dan815

what you are given in that table is a multiplication table in base 8

13. Pulsified333

okay. I am following slightly.

14. dan815
15. dan815

i tried to fit in as much detail as possible

16. dan815

what they are looking for u to do is.. the multiplication methods u normally use but now in base 8 and using that table

18. Pulsified333

what does base 8 mean? are you taking the log of something?

19. dan815

normally the numbers u are using are in Decimal system, otehrwise known as Base 10

20. Pulsified333

oh

21. dan815

now we are switching to base 8, which only has digits 0,1234567

22. Pulsified333

that makes sense now, but how do you find the product of the two numbers its asking for?

23. dan815
24. dan815

are you sure you understand this post

25. dan815

i think you should try an easier example just do \[5_8*7_8\] in base 8

26. Pulsified333

I am trying to understand how to do it, but I don't know

27. Pulsified333

i'm just confused on how you are simplifying it down and multiplying them to make a product
