Convert 163 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 >= 163

160 = 1

161 = 16

162 = 256 <--- Stop: This is greater than 163

Since 256 is greater than 163, we use 1 power less as our starting point which equals 1

##### Build hexadecimal notation

Work backwards from a power of 1

We start with a total sum of 0:

##### 161 = 16

The highest coefficient less than 15 we can multiply this by to stay under 163 is 10

Multiplying this coefficient by our original value, we get: 10 * 16 = 160

Add our new value to our running total, we get:
0 + 160 = 160

Hexadecimal (10 - 15) are represented by an (A-F) where 10 translates to the letter A

This is <= 163, so we assign our outside coefficient of A for this digit.

Our new sum becomes 160

Our hexadecimal notation is now equal to A

##### 160 = 1

The highest coefficient less than 15 we can multiply this by to stay under 163 is 3

Multiplying this coefficient by our original value, we get: 3 * 1 = 3

Add our new value to our running total, we get:
160 + 3 = 163

This = 163, so we assign our outside coefficient of 3 for this digit.

Our new sum becomes 163

Our hexadecimal notation is now equal to A3
