# HEX to Decimal

HEX to decimal conversion is the process of converting a hexadecimal number, which is represented using base-16 digits (0–9 and A–F), to its equivalent decimal form.

To convert a hexadecimal number to decimal, you can use the following method:

- Start from the rightmost digit of the hexadecimal number.
- Multiply each digit by 16 raised to the power of its position (starting from 0 for the rightmost digit).
- Add up all the resulting values.

For example, to convert the hexadecimal number 1A (26 in decimal): 1*16^1 + 10*16^0 = 16 + 10 = 26

A more simple way to convert hexadecimal to decimal is to use a built-in function in most programming languages, like Python's int() function, which accepts a second argument as the base of the number. For example, you can use int("1A", 16) to convert the hexadecimal number 1A to decimal.

Another way is to use the hex() function to convert the hexadecimal number to decimal. Example: hex("1A") would return the decimal value of 26.
