 Math Central Quandaries & Queries
 Question from Jenalee, a student: Hello, I am having problems with a dividing bases question. I reviewed two that I could find in the database and tried the question as shown but I am still getting the wrong answer. My question is 32\24043 to the base of 5 for both.

Hi again Jenalee,

Did you look at my base 7 example? If not do so starting with the sentence that begins "Before I actually start ..." Once you have done so tell me the multiples you obtained for $32_{5}.$
