Bases larger than ten 
20091214 

From Nick: For numbers in bases larger than ten, what are the digits by mathematicians' conventions?
I assume the first 10 are always 09. I know two computer science conventions (for hexadecimal (AF caseinsensitively) and for base 85 (casesensitivity plus 23 other characters)) and as a school student I learned that base 12 uses either T and E (which confused me when I thought they stood for Eleven and Twelve) or A and B, the latter as capitals only. Clearly, these conventions are in conflict.
I saw your reply in http://mathcentral.uregina.ca/QQ/database/QQ.09.99/magin1.html as accessed a few minutes ago but hope that in the 10 years since then mathematicians have arrived at a convention. Have they?
Thank you.

Multiplying numbers in bases other than 10 
20080108 

From Imaiya: In class we've been learning about numbers with a base other than ten. For example, base 7, base 5,
and base 6. What's really stumping me is how to multiply these numbers, when they aren't a base of 10.
I've had it explained to me once, but don't seem to understand it. Here are the equations, and I've listed the first few numbers for that particular base.
Base 5: 0,1,2,3,4,10,11,12,13,14,20 etc... The Equation: 34 x 42
Base 9: 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,10,11,12,13,14, etc... The Equation: 56 x 78
If you could explain to me how to multiply numbers with any type of base, I'd really appreaciate it. Also
if you could show me how to do one of the questions that I listed, that would really help me =) Thanks so much,
and once again, thank you for your great site! Answered by Stephen La Rocque.
