Numerical basis change

If taken a number in basis 10, let say 10(10)

in basis 4 it is : 10=4*2+2=22(4) (notation)

hence the number in a smaller basis is bigger if it were in basis 10

however let say we had 2.5(10) in basis 10, then

2.5=2+1/2=2+2/4=2.2(4)

this time the number in the smaller basis is smaller than if it were in basis 10  wink

Re: Numerical basis change

Neat...  Very peculiar, those interesting fractions...
