For example: 0011 1100 1110, which in hex is 3CE, because 0011=3 1100=C and 1110=E. Easy with the help of a chart like this http://www.ee.nmt.edu/~rison/ee308_spr00/supp/000119/dec_hex_bin.gif . <br /><br />It gets more complicated if you try to convert it into decimal, because there are more combinations with four 0's and 1's then there are numbers in decimal and you have to use formulas to get the number, which is 974 by the way. <br /><br />THE POINT IS YOU JUST CAN*T TAKE NUMBERS LIKE 1100 1110 (CE) AND SAY IT IS 12*14=168, BECAUSE ITS 206 AND YOU NEED FORMULAS TO FIGURE IT OUT, BUT YOU CAN SAY IT'S CE.<br /><br />A very good video which explains the same thing: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9xbJ3enqLnA<br /><br />Hope I helped.Vanapapinoreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-16506996.post-18257570428214632472013-03-11T22:25:04.456-06:002013-03-11T22:25:04.456-06:00Haha your number is 555-1212 great reference!
