    Basis or Bases

    Hello everyone,
    I know the word base which I usually find in mathematics context.
    I am not sure if the plural of this word is basis or bases (for me both are correct).

    Could you please shed some light?

    I would like to thank you in advance for your help

    Best Regards
    Alex
