I am not off base. You will note that I said the word, "MAY", leaving the
option open for the correct base. Jon is the one who insisted on base 12.
 I just left the door open for many possible solutions, showing once
again that the answer 42 does not yet have A (as in single) perfect
answer.

Stephen:
Just occurred to me: 9 x 6 = 42 in base 13, and 9 x 6 = 46 in base 12. 
Obviously, Gary and Jon are simply off-base.
