I AM IN A COLLEGE LEVEL LIBERAL ARTS MATH CLASS AND NEED HELP WITH A BASE PROBLEM. MULTIPLY IN THE INDICATED BASE 443 X 6 (BASE EIGHT).......THE PRODUCT IS _______ (BASE EIGHT)

Before we can multiply these numbers we need to make sure they both have the same base.

443 (base 10)

6 (base 8) so lets convert it to base 10.

6 x 8^0 = 6 x 1 = 6 (base 10).

Now we can multiply the numbers.

443 x 6 = 2658 (base 10).

It looks like the answer needs to be in base 8, so lets convert:

2658 / 8 = 332 remainder 2

332 / 8 = 41 remainder 4

41 / 8 = 5 remainder 1

5 / 8 = 0 remainder 5
