BASE 16 or THE HEXADECIMAL CODE

In Base 16, we have sixteen soldiers to a base. Every time we have a group of sixteen soldiers we make a base, and the rest have to wait until there are sixteen more soldiers for another base. So, 12 in Base 16 means there is one base of sixteen soldiers and two soldiers with no base.
one group of sixteen and 2 left over = 12
