    In base 5 the 3 table looks like:

    3 x 1 = 3
    3 x 2 = 11
    3 x 3 = 14
    3 x 4 = 22
    3 x 10 = 30

    So from this we can say

    Code:
         
          32
        --------
     3| 202
         14
        ---------
          12
          11
        ---------
           1   
        ---------
