Hexadecimal Number System

The Number Systems are defined based on base value. The Hexadecimal Number System uses the base value of sixteen (16). That means the numeral system consists of sixteen (16) possible digits; 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, A, B, C, D, E, F (ten numerical digits and 6 English alphabets), to define the number. 

Each digit has equal weight in this system, which is the power of sixteen (16), and the value of each digit increases sixteen times as we move from right to left in a hexadecimal number system. That means that each digit in the hexadecimal number system has a value sixteen times stronger than the previous one, moving from right to left.

Note: The short form of the Hexadecimal Number System is Hex.

Binary Number System

The Binary Number System uses the base value of two (2). That means the numeral system consists of two (2) possible digits, 0 and 1, to define the number. That system was adopted in ancient times by the Egyptians. And today, it becomes the language of computer systems and digital devices. That is the most efficient system to detect an electric signal's off (0) and on (1) state and the basis for the binary code that computer systems and digital devices use today. 

Each digit consists of the weight in that system, which is the power of two (2), and the value of each digit increases two times as we move from right to left in a binary number system. That system uses positional notation, and each digit in the binary number system has a value two times stronger than the previous one, moving from right to left.

Hexadecimal Number System vs. Binary Number System

The first and the main difference between these two number systems is the base value. The Hexadecimal Number System has a base value of sixteen (16), while the Binary Number System has a base value of two (2). That means the exact number has a different value in these two numbering systems.

The computer systems and digital devices are using a Binary Number System for their functioning. The Hexadecimal Number System is used in mathematics and information technologies as it is easy to represent binary numbers. The 4-bit data is used to save each digit of the Hexadecimal Number; that means one byte can carry binary values from 0000 to 1111. The Hexadecimal Number System is used to define the web colors (HTML color code). Two (2) hexadecimal numbers express the three primary colors (Red, Green, and Blue). These primary colors range from 0 to 255, resulting in more than 16 million colors.
