BASE 16 or THE HEXADECIMAL CODE
I still don’t get those letters you say?
What if we had more than nine of something, but not enough
to make a base of 16? For example: let’s say that we
have eleven items to count. How would we write that amount
in base 16?
In base sixteen we use the letters a-f to express amounts
greater than nine, but less than sixteen. This is how counting
looks in base 16: 0,1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,a,b,c,d,e,f, When we
get past "f" we have one group of 16 and no extra
soldiers so we write that number as 10, which just means:
one group of 16 and none left over.
Okay, now give this a try:
