Hexadecimal (Hex) Number:Hexadecimal is a base-sixteen numeral system that uses sixteen symbols: 0-9 and A-F, where A represents 10, B represents 11, and so on up to F representing 15. It's commonly used in computing for representing binary-coded values in a more compact form.

Hexadecimal Number Example:An example of a hexadecimal number is 2F8A. Each digit in a hexadecimal number represents a power of 16, with the rightmost digit representing 16^0, the next representing 16^1, and so on.

Decimal Number:A decimal number is a base-ten numeral system that uses ten symbols: 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, and 9. It's the numeral system most commonly used by people in everyday life.

Decimal Number Example:An example of a decimal number is 456. Here, 4 is in the hundreds place (10^2), 5 is in the tens place (10^1), and 6 is in the ones place (10^0).

1. Assign Decimal Values to Hexadecimal Digits: Assign decimal values to each hexadecimal digit based on its position and the base-16 system.
2. Multiply and Sum: Multiply each decimal value by its corresponding power of 16 and sum all these products to get the decimal equivalent.
