convert/base - convert between bases

Calling Sequence

convert(n, 'base', β)

convert(L, 'base', α, β)

Parameters

n

-

integer; number to be converted

L

-

list(nonnegint); digits of the base-α number to be converted to base-β

α

-

posint; base of the input number, whose base-α digits are given in L (least significant first)

β

-

posint; output base

Description

• 

convert/base converts the base-10 integer n to base-β or converts the list of integers L from base-α to base-β, in which case we interpret L as the number k=1nopsLLkαk1.  It is assumed that 0Lk<α.

• 

The result is a list of the base-β digits of the converted input.

Examples

Convert numbers in base 10 to any other base. The answer will be given in reverse order (least significant digit first).

convert32&comma;base&comma;16

0&comma;2

(1)

The decimal number 17 written in base 3 is 122.

convert17&comma;base&comma;3

2&comma;2&comma;1

(2)

Convert the number 122 in base 3 to base 10. The number to be converted must be entered as a list in reverse order unless it is in base 10. The answer will be given in reverse order.

convert2&comma;2&comma;1&comma;base&comma;3&comma;10

(3)

Convert between different bases. The first number after base must be the base in which the number in brackets is given.
