Converting to and from Base 5 to Base 10 number systems |

We use the decimal (base 10) number system in our day-to-day living. Base 10 has ten numbers (0-9) and orders of magnitude are times 10. The lowest-order number represents itself times one. The next-order number represents itself times 10. The next order number represents itself times 10x10 or itself times 100. The next order number represents itself times 10x10x10 or itself times 1000. And so on.

An example would be the number 2417. This number means there are:

seven 1’s,

one 10,

four 100’s,

and two 1000’s.

Which represents 7 + 10 + 400 + 2000; for a total of 2417.

### The Quinary ( base 5 ) numbering system uses the same structure...

Converting to and from Base 5 to Base 10 number systems |

**An example**would be the number 3142. This number means there are...

two 1’s,

four 5’s,

one 25,

and three 125's.

Which represents 2 + 20 + 25 + 375 for a total of 422.

**Another example**would be the number 2011. This number means there are...

One 1,

one 5,

no 25's,

and two 125's.

Which represents 1 + 5 + 0 + 250; for a total of 256.
