Binary to Hexadecimal

Binary to Hexadecimal Converter

A Binary to Hexadecimal Converter is a free online tool used to convert numbers from the binary number system to the hexadecimal number system. Binary is a base-2 numeral system, meaning it uses only two distinct digits (0 and 1) to represent numbers, while hexadecimal is a base-16 numeral system, which uses sixteen distinct digits (0-9 and A-F) to represent numbers.

Converting binary to hexadecimal can be more convenient than converting binary to decimal because each hexadecimal digit corresponds to a group of four binary digits (also known as a nibble). Here's how you can manually convert binary to hexadecimal:

  • Group the binary digits from right to left into sets of four, starting from the right. If there are not enough digits to form a group of four at the leftmost end, you can pad with leading zeros.
  • Convert each group of four binary digits into its hexadecimal equivalent.
  • Combine the hexadecimal digits to get the final hexadecimal representation.

For example, let's convert the binary number 1101101011011011 to hexadecimal:

  • Group into sets of four (pad with leading zeros if necessary): 1101 1010 1101 1011
  • Convert each group to hexadecimal:
    • 1101 in binary is D in hexadecimal.
    • 1010 in binary is A in hexadecimal.
    • 1101 in binary is D in hexadecimal.
    • 1011 in binary is B in hexadecimal.
  • Combine the hexadecimal digits: DADB

So, the binary number 1101101011011011 is equivalent to the hexadecimal number DADB.
