How to convert binary to hexadecimal

When working with computers or electronics it is necessary to make conversions between different types of numbers. Transforming a binary number into its hex equivalent has many uses, especially in computer programming.

To convert a binary number to hexadecimal we use the table of with the 16 hexadecimal characters and their binary equivalents. The binary number is divided into blocks of four, from right to left, and its correspondence is searched in the hex table. Finally, the results obtained are ordered right to left to represent the number in hexadecimal.

Binary to hexadecimal examples

It is easier to understand how to convert binary to hexadecimal using a few examples. Let's start by converting the binary number 11110110101 to hexadecimal.

We divide the binary number into blocks of four from right to left: 0101, 1011, 0111 (in the last one we add a 0 to the left to complete the block of 4).

Now we look at the hexadecimal / binary table for the value of each of these binary blocks in hexadecimal.

  • 0101 = 5
  • 1011 = B
  • 0111 = 7

By ordering the results obtained from right to left, we get the hexadecimal value of the binary number, 7B5.

Let's do a slightly more complex example, convert the binary number 11110001001000000 to hex.

We divide into blocks of four and order from right to left: 0000 0100 0010 1110 0001. We look for the hexadecimal that corresponds to each binary in the table:

  • 0000 = 0
  • 0100 = 4
  • 0010 = 2
  • 1110 = E
  • 0001 = 1

Finally we order the results from right to left and obtain the equivalent in hexadecimal 1E240.

BIN 2 HEX, other method

If the hexadecimal / binary table is not available, the following method can be used to convert binary to hexadecimal.

To convert binary 10001011 to hexadecimal we divide it into blocks of four and add its power of 2.

  • 1 ? 2^3
  • 0 ? 2^2
  • 0 ? 2^1
  • 0 ? 2^0
  • 1 ? 2^3
  • 0 ? 2^2
  • 1 ? 2^1
  • 1 ? 2^0

In the values of 1 the power is solved, if it is a 0 the power is ignored.

  • 1 ? 2^3 = 8
  • 0 ? 2^2 = x
  • 0 ? 2^1 = x
  • 0 ? 2^0 = x
  • 1 ? 2^3 = 8
  • 0 ? 2^2 = x
  • 1 ? 2^1 = 2
  • 1 ? 2^0 = 1

The results of both blocks are added: 1000 = 8 and 1011 = 11. Finally, these decimal numbers are converted to hexadecimal to get the final result: 8 = 8 and 11 = B ? 8B
