  • Where 'number' is the binary number to be converted and
  • 'places' is the number of characters to display the output.

BIN2HEX() converts a binary number to its hexadecimal equivalent.


BIN2HEX(number, places)

This function is used to convert a binary number to its hexadecimal equivalent.

  • 'number' must be a binary number. Binary number is represented using digits 1 or 0 only. The number can also be entered in text format (e.g "101").
  • The most significant bit represents the 'sign' of the number (0=positive, 1=negative). Negative numbers are represented using 2's complement notation.
  • Positive numbers may be from 0 (000000000) to 130046 (11111111111111110) and negative numbers from -1 (1111111111) to -512 (1000000000).
  • A number preceding with '0' (e.g 01111111111) should be written in text format ("01111111111") to avoid confusion with octal numbers.
  • If the 'number' exceeds the limit, Calci returns an #ERROR message.
  • If the 'number' is negative, Calci ignores the places and displays 10 digit hexadecimal number.
  • If the 'number' is invalid, Calci returns an #ERROR message.

For Example,

BIN2HEX(11111011, 3) returns 0FB

BIN2HEX(1110) returns E

BIN2HEX(11001100,6.6) returns 00000CC


Formula Hex Output
BIN2HEX(100) 4
BIN2HEX(110011,4) 0033
BIN2HEX(11001100,6) 0000CC
