# Decimal to hexadecimal number conversion

Here you see step by step process of decimal to hexadecimal number conversion. We have to follow some steps one by one those are

We have to divide the decimal number by 16 repeatedly, until the quotient of zero/bellow 16 is obtained.

The remainders are noted down for each of the division steps.

Then the column of the remainder is read in reverse order. That means we have to count those reminder from bottom to top.

In bellow I give you an example to show the process.

Let we have to convert 456_{10} in Hexadecimal. We know the base of hexadecimal is 16. So we have to divide the decimal number by 16.

So the equivalent number **456 _{10} = 1c8_{16}**

So I think the above example will clear the process of decimal to hexadecimal number conversion.
