First go to http://www.shareordie.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=3269 to learn binary.

OK, **1,453,752 is 101100010111010111000** is binary, now we turn it into a Hex number.

**First Hex numbers goes like this:**

1=1

2=2

.

.

9=9

10=A

11=B

12=C

13=D

14=E

15=F

Now you need to take the first octet (the far right 4) and place it under this little grid:

8 4 2 1

--------

1 0 0 0 = 8

See the 1 under the 8 column?

That is what you add.

So the next octet is 1011, put it under the grid:

8 4 2 1

--------

1 0 0 0 = 8

1 0 1 1 = B

See **8+2+1=11**, so you can't just say 11 you have to put it in a Hex number, which is B.

So the full Hex number of **1,453,752** is:

8 4 2 1

--------

1 0 0 0 = 8

1 0 1 1 = B

1 1 1 0 = E

0 0 1 0 = 2

0 1 1 0 = 6

0 0 0 1 = 1 **<-- Just add zero if it isn't a full octet**

**162EB8**

So if you want to turn a number in to the shorter version of Hex, just turn it into binary, then use this grid and you'll do fine

P.S. Thanks Korrupt for the number to work with
