Converting from fractions to "decimal"* in base 12 is much easier
than in base 10. However it would be harder to convert fractions
to "decimal"* in base 11. If students have had exposure to the idea
of converting between bases, they should look at the following fractions
in a few different bases to predict which base is easier for fractions:
1/2, 1/3, 1/4, 1/5, 1/6, 1/7, 1/8, 1/9, 1/10, 1/12.
* Technically decimal means base ten. Perhaps for base twelve we
should say "the duodecimal point", for base eleven "the unidecimal
point," and for base six "the hex point."
