I have an exam tomorrow for an Intro to Networking class and we're going
over binary conversion. Thanks.

Re: Anyone have a good site for learning hex to binary conversion?

Real easy actually; each digit in hex represents 4 binary digits.

For example F in hex is equal to 15 decimal which is 1111 in binary.

So if we go up the scale from 0 to F in hex we will get:

HEX BINARY DECIMAL
0 0000 0
1 0001 1
2 0010 2
3 0011 3
4 0100 4
5 0101 5
6 0110 6
7 0111 7
8 1000 8
9 1001 9
A 1010 10
B 1011 11
C 1100 12
D 1101 13
E 1110 14
F 1111 15

Finally lets convert a multidigit hex to binary

FA72 hex would equal 1111101001110010

F = 1111
A = 1010
7 = 0111
2 = 0010

Re: Anyone have a good site for learning hex to binary conversion?

Isn't there a mathematical computation that I can perform to get those
numbers from hex to bin? Like with bin to hex you multiply each bin # by
2^1, 2^2, so forth and the 0 places, you just disregard those and add the
sum of all the bin 1s and from there you convert those #s to hex.

Like down by contact, this is not a challengeable ruling.

He didn't ask for decimal conversions... sheesh. Mine was short and to the
point.

Okay, next time I'll include decimal AND octal columns!

A classic case of the San Diego Chargers "don't cover Jerry Rice because
everyone will think we double covered him so we can blitz two extra
guys" defense from the Super Bowl a few years ago.

You think that Dick LeBeau would have warned his defense that the Colts
like to go deep to that Harrison guy.
