This paper examined a method that could be used to convert base two numbers to base four numbers vice-visa without using the existing method of first converting to base ten. The effectiveness of this method was based on the fact that all numbers in base two can be expressed in powers of four with multipliers less than four (1, 2, 3). It was noted that this method is faster than the existing method in reaching the desired results.
