  Hexidecimal Numbers

In the hexidecimal number system comprises of the numbers 0...9 together with the first six letters of the alphabet - A,B,C,D,E,F. Where A stands for 10, up to F which stands for 15.

Hexidecimal works in a similar way to the decimal number system other than each place to the left represents a higher power of 16:

eg. 3FA04 in Hex is:

   (3 * 16^4) + (F * 16^3)  +  (A * 16^2) +   ( 0 * 16^1) + (4 * 16^0)

= (3 * 16^4) + (15 * 16^3) + (10 * 16^2) + ( 0 * 16^1) + (4 * 16^0)

= 196608 +          61440 +          2560 +              0         +        4

= 260612
