Binary to HEX

Binary to HEX is an online tool that allows you to convert Binary to HEX easily. Binary is a number system that uses two digits, 0 and 1, to represent all possible numbers. HEX is a number system that uses six digits, 0-9 and A-F, to represent all possible numbers. The Binary to HEX converter takes Binary input and outputs the equivalent HEX value.

To use the Binary to HEX converter, simply enter the Binary value in the field provided and click the "Convert" button. The converter will output the equivalent HEX value in the field below. You can also use the Binary to HEX converter to convert from HEX to Binary. Simply enter the HEX value in the field provided and click the "Convert" button. The converter will output the equivalent Binary value in the field below.

Did you know that a unique code represents every character on your computer? That code is made up of binary digits, or bits. A bit is either a 0 or a

1. When eight bits are put together, you have a byte. So, a byte can store any number between 00000000 and 11111111 in binary form.

To convert something from decimal to binary, you simply divide the number by two repeatedly until you reach zero. The remainder of each division (the number left over after division) is then used to build up the final binary number, with the first remainders being at the far right hand side of the final answer. Here’s an example:

Let’s say we want to convert the decimal number 156 into binary form.

 

We start by dividing 156 by 2:

 

156 ÷ 2 = 78 with a remainder of 0

 

78 ÷ 2 = 39 with a remainder of 0

 

39 ÷ 2 = 19 with a remainder of 1

 

19 ÷ 2 = 9 with a remainder of 1

9 ÷ 2 = 4 with a remainder of 1

4 ÷ 2 = 2 with a remainder of 0

2 ÷ 2 = 1 with a remainder of 0

1 ÷ 2 = 0 with a remainder of 1

 

So, we can write 156 as 10011100 in binary form. You can check this yourself by doing the divisions and noting down the remainders in reverse order:

 

156 ÷ 2 = 78 with a remainder of 0, so write 0

78 ÷ 2 = 39 with a remainder of 0, so write 0

39 ÷ 2 = 19 with a remainder of 1, so write 1

19 ÷ 2 = 9 with a remainder of 1, so write 1

9 ÷ 2 = 4 with a remainder of 1, so write 1

4 ÷ 2 = 2 with a remainder of 0, so write 0

2 ÷ 2 = 1 with a remainder of 0, so write 0

1 ÷ 2 = 0.5 with a remainder of 1 (0.5 can be written as 1/2), so write 1

 

reverse the order of the remainders to get 10011100, which is indeed 156 in binary form!

 

The method for converting from binary to decimal is just the reverse of this process. You take each digit in turn, starting from the far right, and multiply it by 2 raised to the power of its position – so the first digit (1) is multiplied by 2^0, the second digit (0) by 2^1 and so on. The final sum will give you the decimal number:

 

For example, let’s say we want to convert the binary number 10011100 into decimal form. We take each digit in turn, starting from the far right, and multiply it by 2 raised to the power of its position – so the first digit (1) is multiplied by 2^0, the second digit (0) by 2^1 and so on. The final sum will give you the decimal number:

 

1×2^7 = 128

0×2^6 = 0

0×2^5 = 0

1×2^4 = 16

1×2^3 = 8

1×2^2 = 4

0×2^1 = 0

0×2^0 = 0

 

So, 10011100 in binary form is equal to 156 in decimal form. You can check this using a scientific calculator set to binary mode, which will convert a number from decimal to binary (or vice versa) for you.

 

Converting from binary to hexadecimal is also fairly straightforward. You take each group of four bits in turn and convert it into the corresponding hex digit:

 

For example, let’s say we want to convert the binary number 10011100 into hexadecimal form. We take each group of four bits in turn and convert it into the corresponding hex digit:

 

1001 = 9

1100 = C

 

So, 10011100 in binary form is equal to 9C in hexadecimal form. As with decimal-binary conversion, you can use a scientific calculator set to hexadecimal mode to check your answer.

There you have it – a quick guide to converting between binary, decimal and hexadecimal numbers. So now you know how those zeroes and ones are used to store information on your computer!"
