Convert 230 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 >= 230

160 = 1

161 = 16

162 = 256 <--- Stop: This is greater than 230

Since 256 is greater than 230, 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 230 is 14

Multiplying this coefficient by our original value, we get: 14 * 16 = 224

Add our new value to our running total, we get:
0 + 224 = 224

Hexadecimal (10 - 15) are represented by an (A-F) where 14 translates to the letter E

This is <= 230, so we assign our outside coefficient of E for this digit.

Our new sum becomes 224

Our hexadecimal notation is now equal to E

##### 160 = 1

The highest coefficient less than 15 we can multiply this by to stay under 230 is 6

Multiplying this coefficient by our original value, we get: 6 * 1 = 6

Add our new value to our running total, we get:
224 + 6 = 230

This = 230, so we assign our outside coefficient of 6 for this digit.

Our new sum becomes 230

Our hexadecimal notation is now equal to E6

##### Final Answer

We are done. 230 converted from decimal to hexadecimal notation equals E616.
