how to hexadecimal system better then decimal system |

Binary : 1011 0111 1100 0101 Binary (1011011111000101) = Hexadecimal (B7C5) Here I converted binary to hexadecimal easily. Try to decimal. |

Binary : 1 011 011 111 000 101 Decimal(3digts) : 1 3 3 7 0 5 Octal : 1 3 3 7 0 5 Binary (1011011111000101) = Octal (133705) Here I converted binary to Octal easily. Am I right or wrong ? |

Question is stereotype. Convesion to octal is more easy for human but not more common for programmers |

Hello Ranjith you are right but binary to hexa-decimal is conversion is easy when comparing octal. Because it calculation by 4 digits. For the same example (1011 0111 1100 0101) _{2} = (B7C5)_{16}. |

I feel this is more of a mathematical question than a programming question. Since this is a 32 bit number, there is no need to convert at all. I feel the question is quite vague where answer could be true depending on the context in which the person who answers perceives the question |

Niziak you follow the two steps first u convert into decimal and then to octal do u think this one is easy....... |

Is this explanation correct "Hexadecimal system is better, because each 4-digit binary represents one Hexadecimal digit. ". Because, even I can say that each 3-digit binary number represents one octal digit. I can't understand how the hexadecimal is easy?why octal is hard? Can anyone can explain it? |

In hexadecimal only four letters required to represent, hence it is easy. Note, in octal it is represented with six digits ? |

thankyou |

Please tell me how to write 15 table by using bitwise operators? |

Monika said: (Nov 7, 2013) | |

Why not octal ? |

Subhash said: (Jul 24, 2015) | |

Ya 3 digit of binary is very easy to convert to octal. |

The conversion of binary 2 hexadecimal is easy. |

Ganga said: (Sep 9, 2016) | |

Binary number easily converted to decimal. But why not hexadecimal? |

Linus said: (Nov 11, 2017) | |

There are 16 numbers in 1011011111000101. 16 is evenly divisible by four, but not by three, so hexadecimal is easier than octal. |

Praveen said: (Apr 25, 2020) | |

Converting into octal is also not difficult because every three digits from LSB(least significant bit) in the binary system will represent 1 digit in the octal system. Conversion: 1011011111000101 It is 133705 in the octal system. Explanation: 1=1 3=011 3=011 7=111 0=000 5=101. |
