All Your Base

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

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 * 101) + (2 * 100)

The number 101010, in base 2, means:

(1 * 25) + (0 * 24) + (1 * 23) + (0 * 22) + (1 * 21) + (0 * 20)

The number 1120, in base 3, means:

(1 * 33) + (1 * 32) + (2 * 31) + (0 * 30)

I think you got the idea!

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

Elm Installation

Refer to the Exercism help page for Elm installation and learning resources.

Writing the Code

The first time you start an exercise, you'll need to ensure you have the appropriate dependencies installed.

1
$ npm install

Execute the tests with:

1
$ npm test

Automatically run tests again when you save changes:

1
$ npm run watch

As you work your way through the test suite, be sure to remove the skip <| calls from each test until you get them all passing!

Submitting Incomplete Solutions

It's possible to submit an incomplete solution so you can see how others have completed the exercise.
