|how to hexadecimal system better then decimal system|
|Srinivasan said: (Sep 19, 2010)|
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|
|Sudhakar said: (Sep 13, 2011)|
|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 ?|

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

|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.
It is 133705 in the octal system.
