7. Represent the number 6 as a hexadecimal

Well there are a couple of ways I know of to represent the number 6, a decimal integer, as a hexadecimal value.
The easy way would be to understand that from 0 to 9 both decimal and hexadecimal are the same, so decimal 6 is also 6 in hexadecimal, its only after 9 that hexadecimal represents 10 as A, 11 as B, 12 as C, 13 as D, 14 as E, and 15 as F.
The other way would be to repeatedly divide 6 by 16 until the remainder is 0. Then the remainders in reverse order is your new hexadecimal number. I attached a graphic that explains this. There are a few webpages that talk about it too, and a few webpages with programs that do the calculation for you! : )
