# How to convert a binary number to hexadecimal in Excel with the HEX.A.DEC function Published

on Communication between human beings is based on the exchange of opinions, cultures, and other relevant aspects, many of these elements are exchanged through tools and codes developed in standardized languages.

That is, means are used that allow the messages to be transmitted to be understood through codes. In this sense, the numbering systems arise that are the fundamental basis for the calculation and representation of many functional schemes.

Among the numbering systems, you have the binary system that is the basis of machine language, as well as the hexadecimal variant that is a simpler representation of the previous system. In general, it will be very useful to know the definition and base of binary numbers, with which you will get to properly handle the criteria to transform or convert binary numbers to hexadecimal in Excel.

## Calculation basis to transform a binary number to hexadecimal

Before starting a representation for the transformation of a binary number to hexadecimal, it will be very useful to show the difference between both numbering systems, with which you will be clear about the results that you will obtain once you apply the formula in Excel:

## 1. Binary numbering system

It is a numerical representation that bases its calculation on two possibilities, that is, the word binary derives from two possible results, which you can obtain as “0” and “1”. As we named you before, binary numbers are the basis of machine language, so names and everything we write on a PC or any device are based on these numbers.

With this language, you can even write your name. On the other hand, the representation of these numbers to obtain binary from a decimal is enough to divide by 2 until obtaining the number “0” or “1”

For example, the 14 in decimal to make it binary, we must divide by 2 consecutively to obtain the relationship, thus dividing 14 by 2, the quotient is 7 and the remainder is 0, then we divide 7 by 2, the quotient is 3 and The remainder is 1, 3 is divided by 2, the quotient is 1 and the remainder is 1. The binary number will be 1110 which is the equivalent of 14 in decimal.

Like the binary to obtain hexadecimal, the decimal number must be divided, but instead of 2 as the basis of the calculation, the number 16 is used, therefore the representation changes and a hexadecimal number can take any value up to 15. However, in this case, the number 10 is the letter A, the 11 is the B, the 12 is the C, and so on until the 15 is the letter F.

To obtain the hexadecimal number of a decimal, just divide a number greater than 16 by 16, so you will get the equivalence you need. However, this post is oriented to show how to obtain hexadecimal from a binary. To do this you must take 4 consecutive binary numbers to obtain the hexadecimal representation.

For example, the decimal number 18 in binary would be 10010, now in the case of that same decimal to a hexadecimal number, we divide by 16 and we get 12, but as we will do from binary to hexadecimal, we take 4 binary numbers from right to left and we see its equivalent in hexadecimal. Thus we will have 0010, which is the number 2 in hexadecimal, leaving only 1 in binary in the first position that represents the number 1 in hexadecimal.

How to use the function to convert binary to hexadecimal in Excel
Before using Excel to calculate any element, it will be necessary for you to know how to use the formulas in Excel, so you must know the syntax to properly write the function and in this way obtain a positive and satisfactory result.

• The HEX.A.DEC function will help you to know the decimal value of a number that is represented in Hexadecimal
• You must enter the number in hexadecimal format HEX.A.DEC (number)
• It will return the equivalent to decimal

On the other hand, to transform from binary to hexadecimal you must use BIN.A.HEX, you only have to enter the binary number and it will return the hexadecimal. see Microsoft support for more information.

# Determining Lowest and Highest Values ​​in Microsoft Excel Published

on Determining the lowest and highest values ​​requires a special formula or function that you can do with Microsoft Excel.

Determining the highest value can be done easily when there is very little data, but what about when there is a lot of data?

For that you need an Excel formula.

How to? Come on, follow this tutorial in full.

## HOW TO DETERMINE THE LOWEST AND HIGHEST VALUE

To do this, the formula you can use is MAX and MIN.

As the name implies, MAX is to find the highest value, while MIN is to find the lowest value.

Meanwhile, for writing the formula, the highest value is MAX(Number1; [Number2]; …)

Number is the range of numbers for which you want to know the highest value.

## Finding Lowest Value

Now, to find the lowest value you can use the formula MIN(Number1; [Number2]; …).

As usual number is a range of numbers, or the same when you look for the previous highest value.

How, very easy isn’t it? Although it looks complicated, Excel formulas will really make things easier for you.

That’s all and good luck.

# How to Use Automatic Ranking Formulas in Excel Published

on The formula for finding rankings in Excel is also available for those of you who want to rank in a group.

This one formula is a formula that is quite widely used, especially in the field of education.

Well, here’s an Excel formula tutorial to find rankings.

## RANKING FORMULAS IN EXCEL

There are several formulas you can use that basically have the same function for finding rankings.

And the first formula you can use is = RANK(Number;Reference;[order]).

The order in the formula is the number 0 or 1 as a ranking reference.

When you want to sort the value in descending or descending order, fill it with 0 or empty, while when you want to give the value ascending then fill it with the number 1.

But you also need to know that the formula will also give the same rank when there are the same values.

To overcome this you can use this one formula.

## RANK.AVG Rumus formula

The usage is still the same, only the formula is different which becomes RANK.AVG(Number; Reference; [order])

And when you apply it and there is the same value, it will produce an average ranking of that value.

So, for an assessment, this formula is the most appropriate.

Well, if you look at the example, a value of 70 gets a rating of 7.5 while a value of 75 gets a rating of 5.5.

That’s how the ranking formula in Excel works.

That’s all and good luck.

# How to Calculate Workdays with Excel Formulas Published

on Calculating weekdays will be very effective when you use the easiest formula in Microsoft Excel.

Most people are lazy to use Excel for their daily needs, even though this software is very useful.

Then what about the formula for finding the working day? It’s really easy. Here’s the full tutorial.

## HOW TO CALCULATE WORKING DAYS

You can do this with the NETWORKDAYS formula which only counts weekdays, without weekends.

But you also need to know that the weekends here are Saturday and Sunday.

For example, if you want to determine the weekend with another day, then there is a different formula which I will discuss later.

The formula for writing is =NETWORKDAYS(Start_Date; End_Date, [Holiday_Day])

For more details, consider the following image.

In this example, the number of effective working days is 87 days, where Saturday and Sunday are not included.

## NETWORKDAYS.ITL

Well, for this formula you can determine the time off or weekend as needed.

The formula for writing is =NETWORKDAYS.INTL(Start_Date; End_Date; [Weekend_End]; [Holiday_Holiday])

The difference in this formula is that [weekends] are used to exclude and treat as weekdays.

If you do not fill it in, it will be considered as the previous formula.

You can also use a holiday code with a seven-character text string consisting of a combination of the text numbers 1 and 0 to represent Monday-Sunday.

So what happens is the number 1 represents holidays while the number 0 for workdays.

For example, on weekends or holidays Saturday and Sunday, the string code you are using is 0000011.

As for working days only Monday, Tuesday and Thursday or Wednesday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday off, the code used is 0010111.

That’s all and good luck.
