How To Use This Converter
Type a number in any of the Number-Base Radix input fields and press Enter or Return on your keyboard or keypad.
The other Number-Base Radix fields will show the number you entered, converted to the other radixes.
TIP:Entry Errors
If the data you type into any Base field contains disallowed symbols for that field, the converter will notify you.
In that case, simply re-type valid data in the field of your choice and press Enter or Return.
TIP:Copy and Paste
You can Copy and Paste any of the fields by selecting the text in the field,
then pressing Control-C to copy, and Control-V to paste.

Radix-3

Ternary or Radix-3 Number System
Ternary is a Radix-3 positional notation number system. Radix-3 or Base-3 means that each
Ternary "digit" represents a multiple of increasing powers of 3, from right to left, such as:
... 3^{3}, 3^{2}, 3^{1}, 3^{0}
The valid Ternary symbols are:
0, 1, 2
For example, the Ternary number 210 represents the number 21 in the Decimal number system, like so:
(2 x 3^{2}) + (1 x 3^{1}) + (0 x 3^{0})Applications of the Ternary Number System
In modern use, ternary can improve the performance of elliptic curve cryptology algorithms.
During the late 1950s, Nikolay Brusentsov, at Moscow State University in the former Soviet Union,
built a ternary computer, which he named "Setun". In 1970, Brusentsov built an enhanced version, which he named "Setun-70".
Possible future applications of ternary may combine an optical computer based on "balanced ternary"
logic, where no-light represents 0 (zero), and two orthogonal polarizations of light represent 1 and -1.
A base-3 system is used in Islam to count Tasbih (short devotional prayers), to 99 or to 100 on a single
hand, as an alternative to using a string of prayer beads called a Misbaha.

Radix-10

Decimal or Radix-10 Number System
Decimal is a Radix-10 positional notation number system. Radix-10 or Base-10 means that each Decimal "digit"
represents a multiple of increasing powers of 10, from right to left, such as:
... 10^{3}, 10^{2}, 10^{1}, 10^{0}
The valid Decimal symbols are:
0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9
For example, the Decimal number 927 represents the following numerical expression:
(9 x 10^{2}) + (2 x 10^{1}) + (7 x 10^{0})History of the Decimal Number System
The modern Decimal number system, known as the Hindu-Arabic number system, originated in India around the 9th century CE.
The system spread to the western world during the Middle Ages (1000 to 1300 CE) as a result of trade.
Some scholars attribute the first documented use of a Decimal system to China in the 1st century BCE.
