Sorry, I'm having trouble getting the latex to display properly. It wont accept horizontal spaces... If anyone is familiar with the book "Concrete Mathematics" Link at Amazon I was hoping for some help figuring out the equation on page 30: (5 76 2 Now, I understand that 19 = 201 in radix3. The part that I'm having trouble with is how (5 76 2) in radix 10 = 1258.

Like this: 5*10^2 + 76*10^1  2*10^0 = 1258. Definitions are usually a good place to go when you're confused.

Lol. I was stuck in the idea that you cant use a number larger than n1 in radix n notation. I was trying to do 5*10^3+7*10^2+6*10^12*10^0. Thanks for the shove in the right direction.
