In order to convert a base to another base; for instance, if we were to convert a base 10 to base 2, we will first need to know the powers of the base to which we are converting to.
Please read on the Introduction and Explanations of the Number Base System using Tables here.
The instances below shows the powers of various numbers:
The powers of 2 are:
And so on.
Any value raised to the power of zero will always equal to 1.
Simply put, the power of 2 can be written as:
Following the same steps as above, the power or 3 will be:
Still following the same steps as above, the powers of 4 are:
You can read on the Factorization of Quadratic Equation here.
Note: During the final step of our base conversion, the value "one" (1) divided by our base value of interest will always result in the answer "zero remainder one" (0 remainder 1). This is an important step to note as we shall see in our examples below.
Step 1: We need divide the decimal number by the base we want to convert to.
Note: We must take into account the remainder from our division because it will be used as our answer.
Every other step will be similar to step 1 but we will divide our resultant answer from the subsequent steps.
Step 2: Our previous answer from the above division was 5
Step 3: Our previous answer from the above division was 2
Step 4: Our previous answer from the above division was 1
Once our division equals 0, we are done.
Next; we will have to write the reminder from bottom - top; and that’s our answer.
Answer is 1010_{2}
OR
We can also solve this question by using a table; where we will divide the decimal number by the base we want to convert to:

Amazing facts in Mathematics
The opposite sides of a dice will always give a sum of seven
31,556,926 seconds makes one year
From 0 through 1000, the only number that has the letter 'a' in it is 'one thousand'
÷
The division symbol '÷' is actually called an obelus
Four is the only number in the English language that is spelt with the same number of letters as the number (4) itself
40 is spelt as forty and not 'fourty'. It is the only number that is spelt with letters arranged in alphabetical order
An odd number is a number that cannot be divisible by 2.
Every odd number has an 'e' in its spelling. They include:
555 in Thailand sounds like 'hahaha'. This is because the number '5' means 'ha' in Thailand
In mathematics, 10! means 10 factorial. Below is its calculation:
10! = 10 x 9 x 8 x 7 x 6 x 5 x 4 x 3 x 2 x 1 = 3628800
Interestingly, 3628800 seconds is the same as 42 days
42 days is the same as 6 weeks
We can therefore say that 10! equals 6 weeks or 3628800 seconds in mathematics
When you multiply 111,111,111 by 111,111,111; the result equals 12,345,678,987,654,321
NOTABLE POINTS IN Mathematics
The image above shows a right angled triangle. The angle of the above right triangle is denoted as θ. Below are some points to note:
Hypotenuse is always the longest side of the triangle.
Opposite is the side opposite the angle (θ)
Adjacent is the shorter side next to the angle (θ)
Each of Sin θ, cos θ and tan θ are the ratio of sides of the right triangle. They are calculated by using the formula (margic word) sohcahtoa:
soh
Sin θ = Opposite/Hypotenuse
cah
Cos θ = Adjacent/Hypotenuse
toa
Tan θ = Opposite/Adjacent
Circumference in mathematics means the distance around the edge of a circle (or a another curved surface).
Circumference is to circle or any other curved surface
Perimeter means the distance around a square or rectangle or polygon.
Perimeter is to square or rectangle or polygon
