1.)what is the max number of bits required to represent (273)base8 in Binary?
Team,iam not able to understand how the answer given for the above question is 9 bits.
(273)Base8 ----> (187)Base 10.
187 as a number lies between 2^7(128) and 2^8(256) as the question asks for max shouldn't the number of bits be 8 (or) am i understanding the question wrong....
2.)what is the Max value represented by a 5 digit number with base 7?
the values each of A,B,C,D,E can take is with in 0 to 6 as we want max hence all the five must be (66666)Base7
but given answer is (16806)Base7 where value of c is not with in (0-6) how is 16806 a valid number under Base7
