If (159.75)10 = (y)6. Find x



Dicussion (1)

  • (159.75)10 = (y)6
    \( \begin{array}{c|c}
    6 & 159 \\
    \hline
    6 & 26 \text{ R 3} \\
    6 & 4 \text{ R 2} \\
    & 0 \text{ R 4} \\
    \end{array}\uparrow \)
    15910 = 4236
    Then Convert 0.75 to base 6
    0.75 x 6 =4.5 i.e 4.5 - 3.00 = 1.5
    0.5 x 6 = 3.00 423 + 1.5 =424.5
    159.75 = (424.5)6
    (159)10 = (424.5)6
