 This is an important reading assignment if you truly want to be able to read and understand raw bitcoin transactions. We are going to study hexadecimal numbers, it’s a common way to represent numbers in computer science. You don’t have to be a hexadecimal expert to continue in this course, but it will help if you know what it is.

1. What is the difference between hexadecimal and decimal numbers?
2. Which are the extra “digits” we get in hexadecimal?
3. What is the difference between using lower case or upper case letters?
4. What is hexadecimal for 34?

Hey @filip and @ivan , I see the bitcoin programming 101 course is in this forum, but I don’t see it in my course list. Is that normal ?

It’s launching today! It will appear in a few hours.

1.Hexadecimal is base 16 while decimal is base 10. In other words, decimal is from 0-9 integers while hexadecimal is 0-F

1. Extra digits are alphabets (A-F)

1. What is the difference between hexadecimal and decimal numbers?
Decimal is base 10 (from 0-9) and Hexadecimal is base 16 (0-15 or 0-9 + A,B,C,D,E, and F)

2. Which are the extra “digits” we get in hexadecimal?
A,B,C,D,E, and F which correspond to 10,11,12,13,14, and 15.

3. What is the difference between using lower case or upper case letters?
There is no difference. There is not standard. The are interchangeable.

22 is hexadecimal for the number 34. (Bizarre… haha!)

1. What is the difference between hexadecimal and decimal numbers?
HEX is a system that uses a base-16 in stead of base-10 number system.
base-10 uses numbers from 0-9
base-16 uses numbers from 0-9 and then A - F

2. Which are the extra “digits” we get in hexadecimal?
A-F (for the numbers 10 - 15)

3. What is the difference between using lower case or upper case letters?
there is no difference

1. The difference is that hexadecimal uses 16 unique base digits and decimal uses 10
2. In hexadecimal we get the extra digits `A B C D E F`
3. There is no difference between using upper- or lower-case in hexadecimal, they mean the same
4. `34 (base10) = 22 (base16)`

Calculus basis it is.
Not sure what you mean by this question actually.

``````Which are the extra “digits” we get in hexadecimal?
``````

A, B, C, D, E, F

``````What is the difference between using lower case or upper case letters?
``````

Technically. it might make sense for string comparison or hash calculations.
Still, those are done on binary data rather than on human readable representation, so that should not be an issue, I guess.

``````34 == 0x22
``````
``````2 * 16^0 + 2 * 16 ^ 1 = 2*1 + 2*16 = 2 + 32 = 34

1. Hexadecimal numbers have 16 symbols (base16) while decimal numbers have 10 symbols (base10).
Hexadecimal numbers are easier to use because it represents 4 binary digits (nibble)
2 hexadecimal numbers are equal to 1 byte.
2. A B C D E F (10 11 12 13 14 15)
3. The letters of Hexadecimal numbers are not case sensitive.

1. Hexadecimal also contains letters and in effect, big numbers can take less memory (?)
2. A, B, C, D, E, F (10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15)

1. Decimal uses numbers and in Hexadecimal letters can represent numbers also they represents higher numbers.
2. Do you mean letters A B C D E F representing 10 11 12 13 14 15 or I didn’t got the question 3. It will mean different thing.

1. Decimal numbers are 0 to 9 and have 10 decimals while hex numbers have 16 decimals. They use the same 0 to 9 but in addition uses the letters A, B, C, D, E and F.

2. A=10, B=11, C=12, D=13, E=14 and F=15

3. There`s no difference

1. Decimal numbers are the commonly used numbers in everyday life, Math and Arithmetic. Hexadecimal are fairly similar but are mostly used in computer science environment, alongside with binary base-2. Hexadecimal is a base-16 type of count and it does include letters past the last single decimal digit.

2. the extra digits are A(10), B(11), C(12), D(13), E(14), F(15).

3. There is no difference.
