#2**+1 **

We want to use a process by which we keep dividing until we have a "0" whole number

First, divide 105 by 5 and we have

105 / 5 = 21 whole number and 0 remainder

Now, divide 21 by 5

21 / 5 = 4 whole number and 1 remainder

Now....divide 4 by 5

4 / 5 = 0 whole number and 4 remiander

Read the remainders from bottom to top = 410

And this is the base 5 representation of 105 = 410_{5}
