Large binary numbers are difficult to remember so we need a way to work with these large values that is easy to recognise and remember. Since a byte has 8 bits we can easily split it into two equal sections (a nibble) with 4 bits in each. To do this we need to use symbols for the numbers 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15 so we use the letters A, B, C, D, E and F to represent these values. Open the link and save the conversion table to your area it will help you to convert the numbers.
