There is no easy way to remember the Hex to Binary conversions for A to F. You need to learn them so you can automatically write them down without thinking. Once you have learnt the A to F conversion the process of general conversion from Hex to Binary and back becomes very simple. (So learn them!!)

In the previous pages you converted a Hexadecimal number to Binary by expressing each Hex place as a Binary "quartet" (i.e. 4-bits). The process of converting from Binary to Hex uses the same 'quartet' approach, but in reverse.

Example 1. Consider Binary: 1000100100110111 (a 16-bit Byte)STEP 1 Break the Byte into 'quartets' - 1000 1001 0011 0111 STEP 2 Use the table above to covert each quartet to its Hex equivalent - 8937Therefore ... 1000100100110111 = 8937Hex |

Example 2. Consider Binary 1111110001000001 (a 16-bit Byte)STEP 1 Break the Byte into 'quartets' - 1111 1100 0100 0001 STEP 2 Use the table above to covert each quartet to its Hex equivalent - FC41Therefore ... 1111110001000001 = FC41Hex |

Example 3. Consider Binary 11010101 (an
8-bit Byte)STEP 1 Break the Byte into 'quartets' - 1101 0101 STEP 2 Use the table above to covert each quartet to its Hex equivalent - D5Therefore ... 11010101 = D5Hex |
