## On the Subject of Hereditary Base Notation

I'm not really sure why we invented fancy number systems. We now have to deal with our creation, in an explosive way.

See Appendix H for the description of Hereditary Base-N Notation.

On this module, there are two number displays and 18 buttons, labeling 0 to 9, A to F, Clear, and Submit.

The bottom display shows a non-hereditary base-N number where N is a number ranging from 3 to 7.

Use the bomb and its edgework and count the number of true statements in the table below. This number will determine the base value K.
