Chapter 11 Other Bases

We begin this chapter by recalling how numbers are represented in the familiar decimal system (base 10). Next we consider binary (base 2) numbers and the conversion between binary and decimal numbers. Then, we generalize the representation of numbers to bases other than 2 and 10. Finally, we present an algorithm that converts a (base 10) natural number to a numeral in a different base.
