Base Conversions

Use these buttons to convert from one base to another:

  • displays the number in binary (base 2) format and displays the BIN indicator.
  • displays the number in octal (base 8) format and displays the OCT indicator.
  • displays the number in decimal (base 10) format. This is the default and no indicator is displayed.
  • displays the number in hexadecimal (base 16) format and displays the HEX indicator.

The through buttons are used for additional digit entry in hexadecimal mode. When large numbers are displayed in binary mode and don't fit on the display, use the button to reveal the other bits.
