I am having trouble finding the answer to this question, I'm thinking

the solution must be blindingly obvious, so therefore of course I

cannot see it.

I wish to take a fraction in DEC say .4 and convert it to a HEX value.

I also need to find a way to determine if a number is a fraction in

HEX and convert it back to DEC.

(This would be from a disassembly, and we are learning this for

troubleshooting purposes)

My instructor showed us this, but he has got to be the most boring

person on earth and to be honest I think I dozed off for a second. I

really want to be a proffesional computer programmer, and nothing

about this is listed in the book. But we have a homework assignment

and I have 3 days to get this done. There is a list of 50 numbers in

both HEX and DEC. I won't list them here cuz I want to solve the

problems myself, I just happen to need to be pointed in the right

direction for solving them, a formula or something would be nice.

BTW I have tried the calc.exe HEX function, and when I select .4 then

switch to HEX I get 0, which I know cannot be the right answer (does

explain alot of problems with windows though

I know that the problem is related to disassembly, but the course is

C++ so I'm really hoping to not got flamed for an irrelevant post.

Thank you in advance for your replies... BTW the email is made up, so

only reply here... Thank you
