I don't understand how to multiply bases.
Ex. 342 base 7
X 3 base 7
I understand that you can only use numbers 0,1,2,3,4,5,6 but I just have no idea what else to do. I don't get how to convert it to base 10.
It is exactly like multiplying in base ten, just remember where your arithmetic lives
Now the next one is just a bit harder

i.e we have 1 seven and one left over
And for the last one we have
Now when you multiply just use these compuations and don't forget to carry to the next column.

This is just like base 10 i.e
I hope this helps.
