The hexadecimal numeral system (also known as **base-16** or **HEX**) is a positional numeral system that consists of sixteen digits: 0 to 9 (0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9) and A to F (A, B, C, D, E, F) to represent values from ten to fifteen. Hexadecimal numbers are widely used by computer system designers and programmers, and provide an easier way to read binary-coded values. For example, colors in HTML are written in hexadecimal numbers, such as FFFFFF or 23F2A9. Imagine writing values in binary notationâ€¦ it would blow your head after 1 minute!

The binary numeral system is the simplest numeral system and almost the most used in electronic computers (it is also known as **base-2**). Binary system is also used in networking and communications. This is important because all computers are made of transistors, and transistors have only 2 states: on and off. This is equivalent to 0 and 1, true and false, etc. Then, the digits available in this numeral system are: 0 and 1.
