## Hex number

A hexadecimal number system (hex) is a positional numeral system with base of 16. It uses 16 different symbols 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, A, B, C, D and F (or alternatively a – f). Every hexadecimal digit represents 4 binary digits, called nibble. Two nibbles are a byte which is 8 bits. Hexadecimal numbers provide a more human-friendly representation of binary coded values. The prefix 0x is used in C and related languages, which would denote (FA)_{16} value by 0xFA.
