Express the sum 3546 + 4326 as a base-six number

I leaned this very briefly last year but I can't remember at all! just a brief walk-through on how to do base conversions and add base-six numbers please

It's pretty much the same as base-10 addition, except that 3 + 3 = 106, 3 + 4 = 116, and so on. For both these additions you have to carry 1 to the next place.
