Base 3 > Base 10 Code. Computer NewbI have zero experience with computers outside the webnets and HTML. How would I make a code that converts a base 3 number (such as 2011) to a base 10 number (58)? Would it have a limit to its compacity (outside of my computers processing power)? #2 20100808 14:02:30
Re: Base 3 > Base 10 Code. Computer NewbHi Philip II; I don't recommend being shown this conversion. I think it is a very important step in a beginners computer education. The method to convert follows directly from the representation of the number in base 3. Starting from the right and working left. Do you see a method now? In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #3 20100808 14:15:51

No, that is not what I said! Not learn computers, learn a programming language. At least have one installed so you can run code!!!!! It wouldn't hurt to learn something.
Code for what? What languages do you speak? What languages do you have access to. Do you have some dialect of BASIC. QBASIC, Liberty Basic, Visual Basic? Do have a Borland C++, Microsoft C, GNU C? Delphi, Lisp, Forth, Python on your machine, what?
That was good advice there are probably 100 such programs for download on the internet right now. They are execs and you just have to run them. In mathematics, you don't understand things.

Re: Base 3 > Base 10 Code. Computer NewbAs bobbym suggests, first you need a language to code in. You can, for example, use actionscript to make flash animations, or PHP, java, javascript etc to make code for a website, C. C++, VB.net, etc to make desktop applications, just to name a few.
