The format for a number written in base-16 instead of base-10 (decimal). Commonly used in computing or electronic fields, since each digit in a hexadecimal number is trivially converted (by humans or machines) into 4 bits with a table. A number in base-10 is more difficult to convert into binary, requiring repeated division by 2.

When writing a hexadecimal number, for digits greater than '9' convention dictates use of the first 6 letters of the alphabet. So the digits are:
0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 A B C D E F
The value of the popular magic number DEADBEEF when converted from hexadecimal to decimal is 3735928559.

Sep 17 Word of the Day
Fredagsmys is pretty much the most holy tradition of Sweden. The word origins from two words; β€œfredag” and β€œmys”, which roughly translates to Friday and cozy. Every Friday, all Swedes drive by the supermarket to buy ingredients for taco, soda and chips. Then, they all sit down in their sofas with their families or friends and watch telly. Usually, the parents fall asleep after a few glasses of wine or beer while the kids stuff themselves with chips until they have a stomach ache.
Now it's the end of the week; it is time for fredagsmys!
