The base of the hexadecimal number system is 16. Hence, there are 16 symbols or digits in this system. The first ten digits are similar to that of decimal number system - 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, and 9. The rest six digits are represented by the symbols A, B, C, D, E, and F, representing decimal numbers 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, and 15 respectively. The largest single digit is F (1 less than the base 16). Each digit in hexadecimal number system represents a power of the base (16). This number system is used to represent colors in HTML programming; FF0000 represents Red, 00FF00 represents Green, 0000FF represents Blue, etc.
The base of the decimal number system is 10. In this number system, 10 digits are used - 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, and 9. We know that in decimal number system successive positions to the left of the decimal point represents units, tens, hundreds, etc. It is used in our day to day life.
Let's understand the conversion by following these steps-
The steps mentioned above will become clearer when we apply them in an example. Suppose we have a hexadecimal number 4CD that we want to convert into decimal number.
Step i) Write down the power of 16 from right to left starting with 160.
4 C D 162 161 160
Step ii) Multiply these 16n with their crossesponding hexadecimal digit.
Step iii) Add all the products obtained in Step ii) to get the desired decimal number.
4x162 + Cx161 + Dx160 = 1229
The following table provides a list of few hexadecimal numbers and their corresponding decimal numbers-
