Definition of Hexadecimal

The hexadecimal system is a number system based on the \(16\) digits \(\{0,1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,A,B,C,D,E,F\}\).

Each digit of a hexadecimal number corresponds to a power of \(16\), so it is a base-16 number system.

Computer programmers often use hexadecimal numbers to describe locations in the computer's memory.
