# HEX to Decimal

## Convert Hex to Dec with ease, anytime, anywhere!

Hexadecimal or Hex is a number system that uses a base of 16 to represent numbers. It is widely used in computer science, programming, and engineering, especially in computer memory and digital electronics. Decimal or Dec, on the other hand, is a number system that uses a base of 10 and is more familiar to most people. Converting Hexadecimal to Decimal can be challenging, but with the right tools, it can be done with ease.

The process of converting a Hex number to Dec involves multiplying each digit in the Hex number by the corresponding power of 16 and adding the results. For example, to convert the Hex number "3F7A" to Dec, we start by writing out the digits and their corresponding powers of 16:

3F7A (3 × 16³) + (15 × 16²) + (7 × 16¹) + (10 × 16⁰) = 16,442

As you can see, the process can be time-consuming and prone to errors, especially for larger Hex numbers. That's where our Hexadecimal to Decimal converter comes in handy.
