If you have a sequence of

**base 8**digits you want to**convert**to a**base 10**number, process them from left to right, keeping a total you initialize at zero. For each digit x, set the total to**8***total+x. After processing the last digit, the total will be the**base ten**value of the**base 8**sequence.

Furthermore, why is 10 the base number?

When typing a **base**, the small **number** indicating the **base** is usually in **base** ten. This is because if the radix were written in its own **base**, it would always be "**10**," so there would be no way of knowing what **base** it was supposed to be in.

**Base**-

**10**number system is

**known as**the decimal system. and has

**10**digits to show all numbers. 0,1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9. using place value and a decimal point to separate.

In respect to this, how do you convert to bases?

**How to convert a Base 10 number to another base**

- First, divide the number by the base to get the remainder.
- Then repeat the process by dividing the quotient of step 1, by the new base.
- Repeat this process until your quotient becomes less than the base.

**Base ten blocks**, also known as MAB (multibase arithmetic **blocks**) **blocks** or Dienes **blocks** (after the mathematician and educationalist Zoltán Pál Dienes who promoted their use), are a mathematical manipulative used by students to learn basic mathematical concepts including addition, subtraction, number sense, **place value**
