    So, if I understand the question right, you need to represent each "base 6 digit" by a string of 0's and 1's. Then, for example, a base-6 number with two digits a_1a_2 can be written as a binary number b_1b_2b_3b_4b_5b_6 where b_1b_2b_3 represent a_1 and b_4b_5b_6 represent a_2. Now, the trick is that "fives' complement" of a_1a_2 should be represented as \bar{b}_1\bar{b}_2\bar{b}_3\bar{b}_4\bar{b}_5\bar{  b}_6 where \bar{0}=1 and \bar{1}=0.

    Do you know what "base 6 digit" and "fives' complement" are? Because not knowing this is like trying to cook "bouillabaisse" without knowing what it is...
