To convert an integer to base b, divide it by b. The remainder is the ones place.

convert 1982 to base 12 ,first 1982 divide by 12 that gives quotient –  165 and remainder-  2 So the number ends in a 2

again previous quotient  divide by base 12 , 165 divide by 12 that gives quotient –  13 and remainder-  9 So the number ends in a 92

again previous quotient  divide by base 12 , 13 divide by 12 that gives quotient –  1 and remainder-  1 So the number ends in a 192

Finally, 1 is less than 12 so its representation is just 1,

so result is 1192
