In the binary number system, we can write numbers in the form of 0100110, where only 2 digits are used in the whole number (1 and 0).
It is a number system with a base of 2 thus having only two possible digits.
Whereas in the case of the hexadecimal system, you can write numbers in the form of 3AC36B1.
Hexadecimal is the number system with a base of 16 and having 16 possible digits plus characters to represent the number.
The numbers are ranging from 0 to 9 and the characters are A, B, C, D, E, and F.
The Binary to Hexadecimal converter tool can be used to convert any binary number to a hexadecimal number system.
To use it, put the binary number in the input box and click on the convert button to get the desired result.
You can also reset the input if you want to try another example.
This tool is quite efficient and handy in the field of mathematics and computer sciences.
The process to convert Binary to Hexadecimal
The process of converting Binary numbers to Decimal is very simple.
This conversion is based on dividing the binary number into 4-digit blocks from the right to the left.
For example, if the number 10100011, then there will be two blocks each having 4 digits of binary numbers.
1010 0011
After converting them into blocks, the binary to the hexadecimal table can be used for calculation.
Following is the table of this sort of conversion:
Binary Number System | Hexadecimal Number System |
0000 | 0 |
0001 | 1 |
0010 | 2 |
0011 | 3 |
0100 | 4 |
0101 | 5 |
0110 | 6 |
0111 | 7 |
1000 | 8 |
1001 | 9 |
1010 | A |
1011 | B |
1100 | C |
1101 | D |
1110 | E |
1111 | F |
To transform from binary to hexadecimal system, you just need to make 4-digit block.
Once you know the 4 digits, you can find it to a hexadecimal chart to create your hexadecimal number.
The expression "hexadecimal number system" can be a little misleading sometimes because it is commonly a combination of letters and numbers.
It is likely to convert from binary to hexadecimal and get the result consisting of letters only.
For example, the binary number 110010111010 and its 4 digit-block will be the following:
1100 1011 1010
And these numbers are equal to the following hexadecimal numbers from the table:
1100 = C
1011 = B
1010 = A
So, the answer ‘CBA’ consists of only letters, not numbers which is a bit confusing.
