find the quotient and remainder
Hey guys, i missed this lesson due to other obligations could someone just explain the steps to this:

Find the quotient and remainder when (BEADED)$\displaystyle _1$$\displaystyle _6 is divided by (ABBA)\displaystyle _1$$\displaystyle _6$. I know that A=10 B=11 etc but would my numbers simply covert to (10111110) and (11510141514)? Thanks

BEADED means $\displaystyle 13 \cdot 16^0 + 14 \cdot 16^1 + 13 \cdot 16^2 + 10 \cdot 16^3 + 14 \cdot 16^4 + 11 \cdot 16^5$
Similarly to how in decimal $\displaystyle 1234 = 4\cdot10^0 + 3\cdot10^1 + 2\cdot10^2 + 1\cdot10^3$
