1 ζ Bases Dr Frost Objectives: 1.To appreciate how we can have different number systems using different ‘bases’. 2.To convert numbers from decimal to another base. 3.To convert numbers from any base to decimal.

2 E854 FFBA4D These are all examples of numbers! What connects each group of numbers?

3 Base The base of a number system is the number of possible values for each digit.  Values for each digit BaseName of number system 0 to 910Decimal 0 to 12Binary 0 to F (A=10, B=11,... F=15) 16Hexadecimal ?? ?? ??

4 Numbers in decimal If we were to write out 2493, what is the value of each digit? = 2493 multiply ? ? ?

5 Numbers in decimal Now suppose we had a number in base 5 instead. How do we convert it to decimal? = 576 multiply ? ? ?

6 Numbers in decimal Copy and complete in your book = 11 ? ? = 242 ? ? The small number indicates the base = 51 ? ?

7 (Switch to ‘I’m a Mayan’ slides)

8 Exercises Original numberIn base 10 (decimal) Base 2 ? ? ? ? ? ? ?

9 Converting FROM decimal to other bases Do the opposite! Convert 18 to binary ? = 18 ? ? ? ? ?

10 Converting FROM decimal to other bases Convert 272 to base ? = 272 ? ? ??

11 Converting FROM decimal to other bases It can help to write out multiples of your various powers. Below is base 6. Multiples of 6Multiples of 6 2 Multiples of x 1 x 2 x 3 x 4 x 5 Therefore what is 800 is base 6? 3412 ?

12 Exercises DecimalBinaryBase ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ?

13 Decimal to Hexadecimal The most well-known usage of hexadecimal is to represent colours. Each colour can be composed of red, green and blue light, each of intensity varying between 0 and which can be represented using just 6 digits in hexadecimal, 2 for each of the three colour components. A means 10, B means 11,... F means 15

14 REDGREENBLUE ??? ??? ??? ??? HEXADECIMAL FF, FF, FF 00, 00, 00 00, FF, 00 FF, FF, 00 4B, AC, C6 FF, 80, 00 ??? ? ? ? ? ? 0: 0 1: 16 2: 32 3: 48 4: 64 5: 80 6: 96 7: 112 8: 128 9: 144 A: 160 B: 176 C: 192 D: 208 E: 224 F: 240 Multiples of 16:

16 Adding in other bases

17 Adding in other bases

18 Multiplying in other bases x 1 0 1

19 QQQ Time The number of possible values each digit can have. 1a 1b Because each digit must be between 0 and one less than the base/the digits must be less than the base. 2a 2 2b a = 2, b = 4 ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ?
