# HEX2DEC(number, places)

• Where is the hexadecimal number to be converted to decimal number.
• is the number of characters to display the output.

HEX2DEC() converts a hexadecimal number to a decimal number.

## Description

HEX2DEC(number, places)

For example,

HEX2DEC("F") returns 15 as a result.

HEX2DEC("01D",3) returns 029 as a result.

• This function is used to convert a hexadecimal number to a decimal number.
• Hexadecimal number uses digits from 0 to 9 and characters from A to F. The number can also be entered in text format (e.g "1F").
• A preceding with '0' (e.g 013) should be written in text format ("013") to avoid confusion with octal numbers.
• A can be up to 10 characters (40 bits). The most significant bit is the sign bit and remaining are magnitude bits. A negative number is represented in 2's complement format.
• If the is not a valid number, 'Calci' returns an #ERROR message.
• argument is used to return the output with leading zeros. If argument is not used, 'Calci' uses the minimum number of characters required to display the output.
• If is not an integer, Calci rounds the value and uses the integer part as input.
• If is less than the number of output characters, Calci ignores the places and uses the minimum number of characters required to display the output.

Below are few examples that show the use of combination of functions and get the result in decimal -

1)SUM(HEX2DEC("FF"),HEX2DEC("57")) returns 342 as a result.

2)HEX2DEC("65") - HEX2DEC("42") returns 35 as a result.
