### C++ Console Lesson 54: Binary, Octal, and Hexadecimal

http://xoax.net/ Lesson Page: http://xoax.net/cpp/crs/console/lessons/Lesson54/ In this C++ video tutorial, we demonstrate various numerical representations using binary, octal, and hexadecimal. Binary, which is base 2, is inconvenient to use because it requires over three times as many digits as ordinary decimal numbers to encode it; for example, 78 in decimal is written as 1001110 in binary. For this reason, programmers prefer to use number bases with larger powers of 2, like 8 and 16--called octal and hexadecimal, respectively.
