Possible mistake in the explanation example Hexawhatnow? Concerning the base-16?


#1

Sorry if this is the wrong place for this info. I am off course not going through every mistake I find, but this one was during an explanation.

In Unit 4 - CSS: An Overview, it states in the explanation part: Hexadecimal counting is base-16. Each digit can be the numbers 0 through 9 or the letters a through f! Crazy, right? Check it out:

Shouldn't that " or " actually be " and " ? As far as I remember that "a" represents the 10, etc...

Well, you are right - letters from a through f represent numbers in this model. However, it's not always numbers mixed with letters :slight_smile: that's why I believe "or" is used ...
