The aim of this game is to answer the questions with correct converted values. All values in the game are based on hexadecimal numbers, which you will be converting. In mathematics and computer science, hexadecimal (also known as base 16 or hex) is a positional numeral system with a radix or base of 16. It uses sixteen distinct symbols, most often the symbols 0–9 to represent values zero to nine, and A, B, C, D, E, F (or alternatively a–f) to represent values ten to fifteen. Hexadecimal numbers tend to be prefixed with a symbol to help differentiate them from decimal numbers. In this game we use the '#' symbol to prefix hexadecimal numbers... Remember this when you enter solutions in the game. Here are some examples of hexadecimal numbers and their decimal val8ue, note that the calculations is shown in parenthesis: - #B = 11 (11x16⁰) - #A5 = 165 (10x16¹ + 5x16⁰) - #F1B = 3867 (15x16² + 1x16¹ + 11x16⁰) - #2AF3 = 10995 (2×16³ + 10×16² + 15×16¹ + 3×16⁰) The game will give you questions that are either a hexadecimal number that needs to be converted to a decimal number or the other way around. To submit the converted value just enter it in the text box and press the "Enter" key. After entering an incorrect value, if a correct value type is entered (decimal or hexadecimal), then you will get a hint whether you need to go higher or lower.More
