    I'll give you a hint, how do you multiply in decimal by long hand?

    Think carefully as to what you are doing and apply it to your problem, EXACTLY the same rules apply, you will see that from the links i have sent your, the rules of maths still apply to any counting system.

    This is an example, of a base 5 multiplication,

    344
    * 2
    1243

    Try and figure out whats going on here whithout me telling you.
