Homework Help: Base number systems

  1. Sep 18, 2007 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    1) Let [tex]D_n-1 D_n-2...D_0[/tex] be a n-digit unsigned number with base(radix)=b. How much is it in decimal?

    2) How can you convert [tex]301_10[/tex] to a number with base b?

    3) What is the range of n-digit unsigned integers with base=b?

    2. Relevant equations

    3. The attempt at a solution
    [tex]D_(n-1) * b^0 + D_(n-2) * b^1 + ... D_(0) * b^?[/tex]

    I'm not even sure that's right...

    3) n-digit 0 to n-digit b-1 (I don't know about this one)

    Thanks for any help.
