# All Your Base

Medium

## Instructions

Convert a number, represented as a sequence of digits in one base, to any other base.

Implement general base conversion. Given a number in base a, represented as a sequence of digits, convert it to base b.

### Note

• Try to implement the conversion yourself. Do not use something else to perform the conversion for you.

### About Positional Notation

In positional notation, a number in base b can be understood as a linear combination of powers of b.

The number 42, in base 10, means:

`(4 * 10^1) + (2 * 10^0)`

The number 101010, in base 2, means:

`(1 * 2^5) + (0 * 2^4) + (1 * 2^3) + (0 * 2^2) + (1 * 2^1) + (0 * 2^0)`

The number 1120, in base 3, means:

`(1 * 3^3) + (1 * 3^2) + (2 * 3^1) + (0 * 3^0)`

I think you got the idea!

Yes. Those three numbers above are exactly the same. Congratulations!
