The decimal equivalent of E 16 is _____________.

 

Answer:

E 16 is a hexadecimal number.

To find the decimal equivalent of a hexadecimal number:

  • Individual digits of the hexadecimal number should be multiplied by powers of 16 starting with the rightmost digit multiplied by 16 0 , second last digit multiplied by 16 1 , third last digit multiplied by 16 2 and so on up to the leftmost digit. For digits after the decimal point , the leftmost digit should be multiplied by 16 -1 and the next digit by 16 -2 and so on up to the rightmost digit.
  • For alphabets A to F, the corresponding codes should be multiplied with the respective power of 16.

Here,

  • A = 10
  • B = 11
  • C = 12
  • D = 13
  • E = 14
  • F = 15
  •  

Therefore,

E 16 = 14 x 16 0 = 14 10
