Decimal 5238 is converted into binary 1010001110110 arrange the binary in 4 bits. Then 0001010001110110. Now converted to base 16
1476.

5238 convert from decimal to binary. So, the Answer would be 1010001110110. Start from the last which is 0 count 4 backwards (4 bits), regroup it so its easier. It will look like this 0001 0100 0111 0110 ( I added 4 zeros in front-doesn't matter actually just for formality). Those grouped bits convert from binary to decimal to get the answer which is 1476.
