In this paper we introduce a transformation of the center of gravity, variance and higher moments of fuzzy numbers into their possibilistic counterparts. We show that this transformation applied to the standard formulae for the computation of the center of gravity, variance, and higher moments of fuzzy numbers gives the same formulae for the computation of possibilistic moments of fuzzy numbers that were introduced by Carlsson and Fullér (2001) for the possibilistic mean and variance, and also the formulae for the calculation of higher possibilistic moments as presented by Saeidifar and Pasha (2009). We also present an inverse transformation to derive the formulae for standard measures of central tendency, dispersion, and higher moments of fuzzy numbers, from their possibilistic counterparts. This way a two-way transition between the standard and the possibilistic moments of fuzzy numbers is enabled. The transformation theorems are proven for a wide family of fuzzy numbers with continuous, piecewise monotonic membership functions. Fast computation formulae for the first four possibilistic moments of fuzzy numbers are also presented for linear fuzzy numbers, their concentrations and dilations.
