Multiplication in base five 
20140807 

From Alise: Hi Maths Central!
I was wondering if you could help me with multiplying in base 5. I have read a question previously answered by you in regards to this but got fairly confused by it and was hoping you could help me with my question.
My question is: Multiply 1422 base 5 by 21 base 5 keeping these numbers and answer in base 5.
Would you also be able to explain how to get to the answer?
Thanks! Answered by Penny Nom.
