What is the Hexadecimal System?

The hexadecimal system is a numeral system that uses 16 as its base. The hexadecimal digits are usually represented by the symbols 0 through 9 (0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9) and A to F English alphabet (A, B, C, D, E, F). The hexadecimal system was created to give computers and other digital devices a way of representing the numbers 10-15, which are not available on the number line, and the Hex codes are used to represent colors in computer programming because they can be written with one byte of information instead of three bytes (8 bits) for RGB colors.

What is the Binary System?

The binary system is a numeral system with only two possible digits, 0 and 1. It is the simplest form of counting that humans use. It has been in use for thousands of years, from the time of ancient Babylonian civilization to today. and it’s the foundation for all modern computer systems.
