## Homework Equations

## The Attempt at a Solution

the method the teacher taught for numbers less than zero was multiply by the desired base. then take the whole number and write it down as part of the converted number and drop it.

ie 0.8*2 = 1.6 drop the 1 and you have 0.6

then take the leftover and multiply it over and over again until you have reaches the number of significant digits or you reach 1.0

write down all the numbers that were dropped and you have the number in a different base

so i did

0.E * 2 = 1.C

0.C * 2 = 1.8

0.8 * 2 = 1.6

0.6 * 2 = 1.2

but the answer i come up with is wrong because i checked it here.
