Easier |
"It may not be the most elegant method but when you just need to convert something ad-hoc thinking of it as comparison and subtraction may be easier than division" from question "Is it possible to use logarithms to convert numbers to binary?" |

Trickier |
"Subtraction is similar using subtraction of the base type and borrow instead of carry multiplication can be done with repeated additions very slow or cross-products faster and division is trickier but can be done by shifting and subtraction of the numbers involved the long division you would have learned as a kid" from question "Arbitrary-precision arithmetic Explanation" |
