# dec2base

Convert decimal to base N number in string

### Syntax

```str = dec2base(d, base)
str = dec2base(d, base, n)```

### Arguments

str

matrix of strings corresponding to "base" representation

base

1-by-1 matrix of doubles, positive integer value, the base

d

matrix of doubles, positive integer values

### Description

`str = dec2base(d, base)` converts the nonnegative integer values of `d` to the specified base `base`.

`d` must have nonnegative integers smaller than 2^52, and `base` must be an integer between 2 and 36.

The returned argument `str` is a matrix of strings.

`str = dec2base(d, base, n)` produces a representation with at least `n` digits.

### Examples

```for b = 2:36
disp( dec2base(666, b) )
end```

• base2dec — convert from base b to decimal
