Convert 218 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 >= 218

160 = 1

161 = 16

162 = 256 <--- Stop: This is greater than 218

Since 256 is greater than 218, 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 218 is 13

Multiplying this coefficient by our original value, we get: 13 * 16 = 208

Add our new value to our running total, we get:
0 + 208 = 208

Hexadecimal (10 - 15) are represented by an (A-F) where 13 translates to the letter D

This is <= 218, so we assign our outside coefficient of D for this digit.

Our new sum becomes 208

Our hexadecimal notation is now equal to D

##### 160 = 1

The highest coefficient less than 15 we can multiply this by to stay under 218 is 10

Multiplying this coefficient by our original value, we get: 10 * 1 = 10

Add our new value to our running total, we get:
208 + 10 = 218

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

This = 218, so we assign our outside coefficient of A for this digit.

Our new sum becomes 218

Our hexadecimal notation is now equal to DA

We are done. 218 converted from decimal to hexadecimal notation equals DA16.
