**Some Basic Things**

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

For bases higher than 10:

A = 10

B = 11

C = 12 and so on

...

Z = 35 for base 36

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Left sides of equations are almost always gonna be calculations in base 10, resulting

in the result on the other side

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Lets say x=5

3x2 is the number 352, not 3•2 and not 3•5•2

4x is 45, not 4•x

Thus if it is a digit placeholder, it's gonna be a single digit

Let's say x is 9 and you have xx, that would be 99

However if its a variable, it could be any number, like 7,265.384

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

**~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~**

4x+2 = xx

1. What is x?

2. What base is the right side in?
