Convert 76 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 >= 76

160 = 1

161 = 16

162 = 256 <--- Stop: This is greater than 76

Since 256 is greater than 76, 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 76 is 4

Multiplying this coefficient by our original value, we get: 4 * 16 = 64

Add our new value to our running total, we get:
0 + 64 = 64

This is <= 76, so we assign our outside coefficient of 4 for this digit.

Our new sum becomes 64

Our hexadecimal notation is now equal to 4

160 = 1

The highest coefficient less than 15 we can multiply this by to stay under 76 is 12

Multiplying this coefficient by our original value, we get: 12 * 1 = 12

Add our new value to our running total, we get:
64 + 12 = 76

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

This = 76, so we assign our outside coefficient of C for this digit.

Our new sum becomes 76

Our hexadecimal notation is now equal to 4C
