**Binary to hexadecimal conversion** will no longer be a problem with our online converter. Remember that the binary system works in base 2 whose symbols are 0 and 1 while in the case of the hexadecimal system, the base is 16 and we have a wide range of symbols ranging from 0 to 9 and then from A to F.

In case you need to perform the reverse conversion, we have also developed a calculator for from hexadecimal to binary. And if what you want is a binary translatorIf you are interested, please visit the link that we have just left you.

## How to convert from binary to hexadecimal

**Binary to hexadecimal conversion** is a very simple operation that we are going to explain step by step.

To begin with, you need to make 4-digit groupings in binary. If for whatever reason you do not have to make a group of four,** add as many zeros to the left as needed**. For example, imagine that we want to convert the following binary code to hexadecimal:

1101001100101

**Making 4-digit groupings** (from right to left) we are left with the chain organized as follows:

0001 1010 0110 0101

If you notice, we had to add 3 zeros to the last group (the one on the far left).

Con las agrupaciones ya hechas, aplicaremos un pequeño "truco" para aprender a convertir de binario a hexadecimal. Este truco consiste en** add a kind of exponent on top of each digit of the group of four**. They always have the same placement and it is as follows:

0

^{8}0^{4}0^{2}1^{1}/ 1^{8}0^{4}1^{2}0^{1}/ 0^{8}1^{4}1^{2}0^{1}/ 0^{8}1^{4}0^{2}1^{1}

From left to right, **we will always place**:

- An 8 in the first digit
- A 4 in the second
- A 2 in the third
- A 1 in the room

Estos números que hemos colocado representan la cantidad de 8's, 4's, 2's y 1's que tenemos en cada grupo. Por ejemplo, si cogemos el conjunto:

0

^{8}1^{4}0^{2}1^{1}

We see that:

- Tenemos cero 8's
- We have a 4
- Tenemos cero 2's
- We have a 1

Now we add it all up and we are left with:

4 + 1 = 5

Therefore, group 0101 in binary is equal to 5 in hexadecimal. Now we have to repeat the same with each group:

0

^{8}0^{4}0^{2}1^{1}= 0 + 0 + 0 + 1 = 11

^{8}0^{4}1^{2}0^{1}= 8 + 0 + 2 + 0 = 100

^{8}1^{4}1^{2}0^{1}= 0 + 4 + 2 + 0 = 60

^{8}1^{4}0^{2}1^{1}= 0 + 4 + 0 + 1 = 5

We have already passed the** binary number to hexadecimal** but we have a new problem and that is that the hexadecimal number system goes from 0 to 9 and for higher numbers it uses letters following this order:

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

Therefore, that 10 that we have obtained in the previous step is actually a letter A.

Finally, we put everything we have seen together and we are left with the binary number 1101001100101 equal to 1A65 in hexadecimal.

## How to convert from binary to hexadecimal in Excel

**Excel can convert from binary to hexadecimal** automatically as long as we do not enter a binary number longer than 10 bits, after which it does not work and returns an error.

If for you this limitation is not a problem, you simply have to type the following **Excel function to convert from binary to hexadecimal**:

=BIN.A.HEX(A2)

With that equality, we are telling Excel to convert what is in parentheses from binary to decimal. In this case we are referencing cell A2 so when we write a binary number in it, **will be automatically converted to hexadecimal**.

If we wish, we can also write between the parentheses the **binary number that we want to convert to hexadecimal:**

=BIN.A.HEX(110101)

As you can see, the operation is very simple and will get us out of trouble as long as we do not have to work with binary numbers of too great a length. If you exceed the limits of Excel, you can always use our **binary to hexadecimal converter** which supports a much wider range.

## Binary to hexadecimal table

Below you will find a table that compiles all of the **symbols in the hexadecimal system** and you will see their correspondence in binary, so you can print the table if you think it is necessary or have a more global vision of the 16 symbols in hexadecimal.

---|---|

0 | 0 |

1 | 1 |

10 | 2 |

11 | 3 |

100 | 4 |

101 | 5 |

110 | 6 |

111 | 7 |

1000 | 8 |

1001 | 9 |

1010 | A |

1011 | B |

1100 | C |

1101 | D |

1110 | E |

1111 | F |

## Binary to hexadecimal with the calculator

We have already seen how **convert from binary to hexadecimal** with our converter, in Excel or even manually with operations but if you have a Casio scientific calculator at hand, you can probably do the conversion with it as well.

Para ello, lo que tienes que hacer es localizar la tecla "MENU CONFIG" o "MODE SETUP" y pulsarla. Te saldrán diferentes opciones en la pantalla pero tienes que seleccionar la que pone "BASE-N".

Ahora lo único que tienes que hacer es localizar y pulsar la tecla que pone "BIN" en la parte superior. En la calculadora de la foto la puedes ver en la última fila de botones. Cuando la hayas pulsado, **type the number in binary you want and press the equals key** (=) when you are done.

A continuación, presiona el botón que pone "HEX" en la parte superior (se encuentra en la misma fila que "BIN") y la calculadora hará la **binary to hexadecimal conversion** automatically.
