Hex to Decimal Conversion

The following example lets you understand how to perform hex to decimal conversion
Example: Convert hexadecimal number (5 A F)16 to its equivalent decimal value
The hex number (5 A F)16 can be written as follows
= 5 x 162 + A x 161 + F x 160
Replace the hexadecimal numbers by its equivalent decimal values and perform the arithmetic operation
A = 10 and F = 15;
= 5 x 162 + 10 x 161 + 15 x 160
= 1280 + 160 + 15 = 1455
The decimal equivalent is (1455)10
