# Binary?Hex?C++?

Hi,

I'm not sure where I am going with this but I am bored just being a PCUser.

I picked up a book titled A+Comptia Certified Computer Technician...and some parts.

In the first chapter I was sent to an appendix which began explaining Hexidecimal.

I figured out how to read it and somewhat change decimal to hex(base16)up to 255.(FF)

question is after FF where do I go?I then bought a book titled (by sams)Teach Yourself

C++.It too had some more info on Hex.Guess my question is how important is it to truely

learn hex?Is hex involved in programming as well as repair?If so,where is a good sorce

on hex located at?

Thanks,

confused

(ps)If I am on the wrong mesgboard please direct me to the right one)

hello there,i dont suppose your name is flint

i would tell you something to correlate between

our no. system (0-9)and comp.'s no system(0-f)

as 10d(d->decimal)means ten to you

10h(h->hex) means sixteen to us and to the comp

as well

just pick up any book on basic comp. sc.

or digital logic and it will help you

immensely
