Convert 196 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 >= 196

160 = 1

161 = 16

162 = 256 <--- Stop: This is greater than 196

Since 256 is greater than 196, 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 196 is 12

Multiplying this coefficient by our original value, we get: 12 * 16 = 192

Add our new value to our running total, we get:
0 + 192 = 192

Hexadecimal (10 - 15) are represented by an (A-F) where 12 translates to the letter C

This is <= 196, so we assign our outside coefficient of C for this digit.

Our new sum becomes 192

Our hexadecimal notation is now equal to C

##### 160 = 1

The highest coefficient less than 15 we can multiply this by to stay under 196 is 4

Multiplying this coefficient by our original value, we get: 4 * 1 = 4

Add our new value to our running total, we get:
192 + 4 = 196

This = 196, so we assign our outside coefficient of 4 for this digit.

Our new sum becomes 196

Our hexadecimal notation is now equal to C4

##### Final Answer

We are done. 196 converted from decimal to hexadecimal notation equals C416.
