Convert 16 from decimal to hexadecimal

(base 16) notation:

##### Power Test

Raise our base of 16 to a power

Start at 0 and increasing by 1 until it is >= 16

160 = 1

161 = 16 <--- Stop: This is equal to 16

Since 16 is equal to 16, we use our current power as our starting point which equals 1

Work backwards from a power of 1

##### 161 = 16

The highest coefficient less than 15 we can multiply this by to stay under 16 is 1

Multiplying this coefficient by our original value, we get: 1 * 16 = 16

Add our new value to our running total, we get:
0 + 16 = 16

This = 16, so we assign our outside coefficient of 1 for this digit.

Our new sum becomes 16

Our hexadecimal notation is now equal to 1

##### 160 = 1

The highest coefficient less than 15 we can multiply this by to stay under 16 is 1

Multiplying this coefficient by our original value, we get: 1 * 1 = 1

Add our new value to our running total, we get:
16 + 1 = 17

This is > 16, so we assign a 0 for this digit.

Our total sum remains the same at 16

Our hexadecimal notation is now equal to 10

We are done. 16 converted from decimal to hexadecimal notation equals 1016.
