Instead referred to hex and as Base-16, the hexadecimal numbering system employs combinations of 16-character numbers to represent all numerical values. In a non-programming context, a subscript is typically used to give the radix, for example the decimal value 10,995 would be expressed in hexadecimal as 2AF316.

Several notations are used to support hexadecimal representation of constants in programming languages, usually involving a prefix or suffix. The prefix “0x” is used in C and related languages, where this value might be denoted as 0x2AF3.

Along with the five figures within the decimal system (0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, and 9), hexadecimal also uses the characters A through F to produce a hexadecimal number..
