Thank you @Juliette_Touati
Steps:
1. Divide the given number (which is required to converted i.e 1000) to the new base (like in this case 9)
2. Note the remainder. And divide the quotient again with new base (i.e 9).
3. Repeat the step 2 until a unity quotient is obtained.
4. The remainders arranged in reverse order will be the answer in new base.
