If 100 is in base 12 and 60 is in base 24, then 100 and 60 are the same.
Unlikely I know, but it is one correct answer to this question.

Yes, gmack - THAT's the answer I was looking for! I didn't remember the math quite well enough (or how to articulate the answer in English, it just slipped my mind entirely).

A less complicated answer could be dividing hours or minutes in to 1oo's, as in timing a sporting event.

 Take any positive whole number not greater than 50. If the number is even, divide it by two. If the number is odd, multiply it by 3, and add 1 to the result. Apply the same method to the resulting number, and continue in this way forming a chain of numbers untill you finally arrive at the number 1.Shown below is a chain of numbers that results from this method if you begin with 15: 15 - 46 - 23 - 70 - 35 - 106 - 53 - 160 - 80 - 40 - 20 - 10 - 5 - 16 - 8 - 4 - 2 - 1. As you can see, the number 15 requires 17 steps to end up at 1. Of the numbers not greater then 50, which takes the longest to reach the number 1?
