I got this idea from brhan's sequence.

A set of numbers is given below:
1,2,3,2,1,2,3,4,2,1

Another set of numbers is given below:
8,4,12,4,8,4,12,2,4,8

There is a certain relationship between these two sets of numbers.Can you find the relationship? ;)

If nobody finds an answer I will post a hint. :)

For newbies , please post your answer inside spoilers.


Spoiler for what I think...

Storm, totally agree.

Gray cells, great puzzle.

Thanks , bononova.But still I am not entirely in the clear.If it is hex how can 12 be equal to 1100.
