Of, relating to, or based on the number 16. &diamf3; The hexadecimal number system is a way of representing numbers where each successive digit or number represents a multiple of a power of 16. It uses the digits 0–9 plus the letters A, B, C, D, E, and F to represent the decimal values 10–15. For example, 4B7E represents (4 × 163 ) + (11 × 162 ) + (7 × 161 ) + (15 × 160 ), or 19,327 in the decimal system.
