### DECIMAL TO BASE 6 CONVERSION

WHOLE NUMBERS

We apply the following rules to convert a decimal number to base 6.

We divide the decimal number by 6 repeatedly until the quotient becomes 0.Starting at the least significant digit, we write the remainders in the same order of divisions.

For example, to convert decimal 83 to base 6, we divide 83 by 6 repeatedly until the quotient becomes 0.

When we divide 83 by 6, the quotient is 13 and the remainder is 5. Thus, 5 is the least significant digit of the base 6 equivalent. We continue the algorithm with 13. When we divide 13 by 6, the quotient is 2 and the remainder is 1. Then 1 is the second least significant digit of the base 6 number. Finally, we divide 2 by 6. When we do this operation, the quotient is 0 and the remainder is 2. Because the quotient is 0, we stop the procedure. Then we write the last remainder to the most significant digit of the base 6 number. To sum up, the base 6 representation of 83 is 215.

(83)10 = (215)6

DECIMAL NUMBERS

In case, the decimal number is not an integer, we can convert the whole number and fractional parts separately and add up base 6 equivalents.

To convert the fractional part of a decimal number, we apply the following rules.

We multiply the fractional part by 6 repeatedly until the product becomes an integer or the number of significant digits is sufficient for our calculations.At each step, we write the integer part of the rightmost digit to the fractional part of the base 6 number. We continue with the fractional part of the product.

For example, to convert 83.125 to base 6, we multiply the fractional part by 6 repeatedly until we find an integer.

0.125 × 6 = 0.750.75 × 6 = 4.50.5 × 6 = 3

The fractional part of 83.125 is 0.125. When we multiply 0.125 by 6, the result is 0.75. The integer part of 0.75 is 0. Thus we write 0 to the first digit on the RHS of the radix point.

0.0

We continue with the fractional part of 0.75. When we multiply 0.75 by 6, the result is 4.5. We write the integer part of 4.5 to the next digit of the base 6.

0.04

The fractional part of 4.5 is 0.5. Therefore, we continue with this number. The product of 0.5 and 6 is equal to 3. Because 3 is an integer we write it to the next digit and stop multiplying numbers.

(0.125)10 = (0.043)6

Base 6 representation of 83.125 is equal to the sum of base 6 representations of 83 and 0.125. Thus, decimal 83.125 is equal to 215.043 in base 6.

(83.125)10 = (83)10 + (0.125)10

= (215)6 + (0.043)6

= (215.043)6
