In mathematics, numbers can be represented in different bases or radixes. Most of us are familiar with the base 10 number system, but numbers can also be converted and expressed in other bases like binary (base 2), hexadecimal (base 16), and more.

## What is Base 10?

Base 10 is the mathematical numeral system used commonly around the world. It is also referred to as the decimal system.

In base 10, there are 10 digits used to represent numbers: 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, and 9.

The position of each digit indicates its value based on powers of 10. For example, in the number 543:

• The 5 is in the hundreds place, so its value is 5 x 100 = 500
• The 4 is in the tens place, so its value is 4 x 10 = 40
• The 3 is in the ones place, so its value is 3 x 1 = 3
• When we add up the place values, we get the total number value: 500 + 40 + 3 = 543

This pattern continues as numbers get larger, with each place to the left increasing the power of 10.

Base 10 utilizes place value and powers of 10 to represent numbers in an efficient way. This is why it is the most commonly used number system.

## What is Base 5?

Base 5 is a numeral system that uses 5 as its base. It is an example of a non-decimal based number system.

In base 5, there are 5 digits used to represent numbers: 0, 1, 2, 3, and 4.

The position of each digit indicates its value based on powers of 5. For example, in the base 5 number 432:

• The 4 is in the hundreds place, so its value is 4 x 25 = 100
• The 3 is in the tens place, so its value is 3 x 5 = 15
• The 2 is in the ones place, so its value is 2 x 1 = 2
• When we add up the place values, we get the total: 100 + 15 + 2 = 117 in base 10.

As numbers get larger in base 5, each place to the left increases the power of 5.

Base 5 has some uses in computer science and cryptography because of how it represents data differently from base 10.

## How to Convert Value From Base10 to Base5

Below, we have solved two examples in which a base-10 value has been converted to base-5. We have explained the steps in a tutorial format, so if you don’t have access to our base-10 to base-5 conversion calculator, you can do it manually with the help of these tutorial.

Example 1:

Convert 34 (base 10) to base 5.

Solution :

Converting a number from base 10 to base 5 is a simple process. You start by dividing the number by 5 using the long division method. Continue this process, dividing each quotient by 5 until it reaches 0. Then, arrange all the remainders in reverse order. In our step-by-step tutorial, we will guide you through each of these steps to help you perform the conversion effortlessly.

Step 1) First divide the number by 5 as we are converting it to base5.

34 ÷ 5 = 6 R 4

Dividing 34 by 5 we get 6 as the quotient and 4 as the remainder.

Step 2) Now divide the quotient from above expression by 5.

6 ÷ 5 = 1 R 1

Dividing 6 by 5 we get 1 as the quotient and 1 as the remainder.

Step 3) Now divide the quotient from above expression by 5.

1 ÷ 5 = 0 R 1

Now as the dividend is smaller than the divisor, the quotient will obviously be zero. Hence, dividing 1 by 5 we get 0 as the quotient and 1 as the remainder.

Step 4) We have achieved the quotient as zero. Now rearrange all the remainders from reverse i.e from downward.

114

The conversion of 34 (base 10) is 114 (base 5)

Example 2:

Convert 495 (base 10) to base 5.

Solution :

Converting a number from base 10 to base 5 is simple. Just divide the number by 5 using the long division method. Keep doing this until the quotient becomes 0. Then, arrange all the remainders in reverse order. In our step-by-step tutorial, we’ll show you exactly how to do this.

Step 1) First divide the number by 5 as we are converting it to base5.

495 ÷ 5 = 99 R 0

Dividing 495 by 5 we get 99 as the quotient and 0 as the remainder.

Step 2) Now divide the quotient from above expression by 5.

99 ÷ 5 = 19 R 4

Dividing 99 by 5 we get 19 as the quotient and 4 as the remainder.

Step 3) Now divide the quotient from above expression by 5.

19 ÷ 5 = 3 R 4

Dividing 19 by 5 we get 3 as the quotient and 4 as the remainder.

Step 4) Now divide the quotient from above expression by 5.

3 ÷ 5 = 3 R 4

Now as the dividend is smaller than the divisor, the quotient will obviously be zero. Hence, dividing 3 by 5 we get 0 as the quotient and 3 as the remainder.

Step 4) We have achieved the quotient as zero. Now rearrange all the remainders from reverse i.e from downward.

3440

The conversion of 495 (base 10) is 3440 (base 5)
