(or system of numeration) is a writing system for expressing numbers, that is a mathematical notation for representing numbers of a given set, using graphemes or symbols in a consistent manner. It can be seen as the context that allows the symbols "11" to be interpreted as the binary symbol for three, the decimal symbol for eleven, or a symbol for other numbers in different bases.
BINARY TO HEXADECIMAL
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 - 8937
Therefore ... 1000100100110111 = 8937Hex
Converting Decimal to Binary

To change from Decimal to Binary you carry out a series of subtractions based on the Binary 'Place' values...
|Binary Place Values |
|D7 |D6 |D5 |D4 |D3 |
|150 |
|ie Decimal 150 = Binary 10010110 |

You should check your answer by doing a Binary to Decimal conversion...
10010110 = 128 + 0 + 0 + 16 + 0 + 4 + 2 + 0 = 150

To convert a given octal number to binary, write out the octal number in the following format. We will convert octal 5678:
[pic]
Next, below each octal digit write the corresponding three-digit
