C++ Program for Decimal to Hexadecimal Conversion

In this lesson we are goin to see how to convert decimal to hexadecimal.


Hexadecimal describes a numbering system which contains 16 sequential numbers as base units including 0.

The hexadecimal numbers are 0-9 and then  we use the letters A-F.  The example of the equivalence of binary, decimal, and hexadecimal numbers are shown in the table below.

Hexadecimal is used  to convert byte/modern computer numbers into defined binary digits. In order to convert any value from hexadecimal to binary ,one has to translate each hexadecimal digit into its 4 bit binary equivalent. And so two hexadecimals can show eight binary digits/ 1 byte.It is used in debugging a new computer program or coding a new  program or HTML page.
