## Homework Statement

Hello,

Express the following number in BCD using 6 digits:

(99 7126)base10

## Homework Equations

Algorithm for changing (99 7126)base10→(N1)base8→(N2)base2

BCD table:

Decimal BCD

0 0000

1 0001

2 0010

3 0011

4 0100

5 0101

6 0110

7 0111

8 1000

9 1001

## The Attempt at a Solution

[/B]

(99 7126)base10→(N1)base8

997126/8=124640R6→d0

124640/8=15580R0→d1

15580/8=1947R4→d2

1947/8=243R3→d3

243/8=30R3→d4

30/8=3R6→d5

3/8=0R3→d6

N1=3633406

(3633406)base8→(N2)base2

N2= 011 110 011 011 100 000 110

In retorspect I realize that the above method is pointless.

I could directly convert the above number from decimal to BCD

but where does the "six-digits" factor. I would have much more then 6 digits when I convert that big number to BCD. Please help.
