I do not know why you ask questions over and over Virgil Since the generic code for all bases must be written ***again*** i can only show you the idea using base 3 paragraphs for empty preceding entrys keeping track of multiple * bas (Ternary=1,3,9,27,81....) Fractions = NyaN 1/3 = .1 2/3 = .2 1/9 = .(1)1 2/9 = .(1)2 1/27 = .(2)1 2/27 = .(2)2 1/81 = .(3)1 2/81 = .(3)2
