Modulars and Bases
- Mr. Vance
Use the slider and textbox to change the inputs and to explore the questions below.
What is the relationship between the two outputs? For certain values of b and n, the number shown in the new base includes letters; what do these letters represent? For example, in base-15 the number 14 is E. Finally, observe what happens when you enter a decimal: ▶For the decimal you entered, what would you assume the outputs would be? ▶Were the outputs different than you expected? ▶If the outputs were different than expected, conjecture why.
