If you are working in base 6,
what do you have to add to 4(base 6) to get 10(base 6)????

Lucy,

Write the two numbers in base ten. What is 4_{6} written in base ten? What is 10_{6} written in base ten? Now ask the same question but with the numbers written in base ten. What do you add to the first number to get the second number?

If you need more help write back,
Penny
