Convert 203 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 >= 203

160 = 1

161 = 16

162 = 256 <--- Stop: This is greater than 203

Since 256 is greater than 203, we use 1 power less 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 203 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 <= 203, 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 203 is 11

Multiplying this coefficient by our original value, we get: 11 * 1 = 11

Add our new value to our running total, we get:
192 + 11 = 203

Hexadecimal (10 - 15) are represented by an (A-F) where 11 translates to the letter B

This = 203, so we assign our outside coefficient of B for this digit.

Our new sum becomes 203

Our hexadecimal notation is now equal to CB

We are done. 203 converted from decimal to hexadecimal notation equals CB16.
