Dear Friends, Can u clear my query, What exactly is the difference between the radix 2 and radix 4 and how the number of computations vary. Thanks in advance. regds,sree. Catch all the cricket action. Download Yahoo! Score tracker

Hi Sreedhar, The radix is simply the base of the number system you want to use. Therfore, when you consider the logarithmic scale, any number in radix 4 system is half the value it has in the radix 2 system. As regards your question about the number of computations, I am not sure in what respect you have posed this question. N

Hello To my understanding.. The decimal number system that we all use has radix 10 meaning u have 0 to 9 numbers to count on and then 10 Radix 2 will be number system with only two digits 0 and 1. so decimal number 2 will be represented as 10 and 3 as 11 and so on For radix 4 u will have numbers 0 1 2 and 3 in ur number system and there u will represent number 4 as 10 and number 5 as 11 and so on... so I think the other solution given is not correct as all values are not going to be half! 0 and 1 have same value in both number systems! Hope it helps Regards, Amit  Appalayagari Sreedhar <> wrote: > Dear Friends, > > Can u clear my query, > > What exactly is the difference between the radix 2 > and radix 4 and how the number of computations vary. > > Thanks in advance. > > regds,sree. > > Catch all the cricket action.
