because if you reflect on our base ten we can only count 0, 1, 2, 3, 4,
5, 6, 7, 8, 9, then we get to 1 base (notice we have ten numbers in
0-9) then we have to start over 1 base (10) and 0 = 10; 1 base (10) and
1 we have 11; The same is true with 4 we count 0, 1, 2, 3, we have 4
numbers or one base in Base 4 so when we get to 4 in
Base four it is 1(base) and 0; 5 would be one (base) and 1; 6 would be
1 (base) and 2; 7 would be one base and 3; another way to look at bases
is take the base ten number and divide by the base you are in and
you'll have the new bases number by looking at the dividend as how many
bases you have and the remainder as what is in the "ones" place. For
example if the number is 16 and we divide it by 4 we have 4(bases) and
none left over or 40; if we have 35 in base four we have 8 (bases ) and
3 left over or the number 83 in base 4. I hope this helps you.

For problem A6....
I do not understand what base 4 is. How do you get a
ten as the next number when the pattern so far is 1,
2, 3...?
