Converting from base 10 to base 5 2003-09-10
From Susy:

My son, who is 9 in grade 5 has been asked to convert base 10 numerals into base 5.

His first question of:

24(10) he has calculated to be 4x5 + 4x1 = 44 (5)

The next question however is the tricky one. We know the answer is supposed to be 100 but we find it difficult to get this in the way he understands it.

25 (10) = _________________ 100 (5)

Can you help us figure out how we reach the answer.
