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!

Setup

Go through the setup instructions for JavaScript to install the necessary dependencies:

Making the Test Suite Pass

Execute the tests with:

1
jasmine <exercise-name>.spec.js

Replace <exercise-name> with the name of the current exercise. E.g., to test the Hello World exercise:

1
jasmine hello-world.spec.js

In many test suites all but the first test have been skipped.

Once you get a test passing, you can unskip the next one by changing xit to it.

Submitting Incomplete Solutions

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