Hey all, I am majoring in math and taking this c++ which I am having some trouble with. [Im into paper and pencils :grumpy: ](adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

So my assignment is to have a number saved in a string then convert it from a string to an integer (have that done) and finally convert that number to a decimal number from whatever base the user inputs.

I am lost with the int-base to decimal.

I was thinking using BASE 2 and convert it which ever base.

Integer--> convert it to base 2-->user inputs base-->converst BASE 2-->BASE N

Ex.

read 6

convert that to base 2-->110 [4+2+0=6]

user wants base 2-->print 110

Im assuming there is an algorithm for converting between bases that I dont know about.

Any ideas on how to do this and additional help would be really appreciated!!

ty all!
