## Ascii

**ASCII** is an encoding system, known as an abbreviation for the American Standard Code for Information Interchange.
Designed initially for old type computers and printers from telegraphic codes,
it was based on 128 symbols including 10 numbers, 26 letters of English alphabet,
a number of punctuation marks, etc.
The system represents visible characters or commands for printing like "start", "wait", "complete", etc.
The latest versions of *ASCII* systems are very widely used in telecoms equipment and computing.

## Hex System

**Hex**, or *hexadecimal*, is a number system of base 16.
This number system is especially interesting because in our casually used decimal system
we have only 10 digits to represent numbers. As hex system has 16 digits,
the extra needed 6 digits are represented by the first 6 letters of English alphabet.
Hence, **hex** digits are 0,1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8 and 9 A, B, C, D, E, F.
This number system is the most commonly used in mathematics and information technologies.
I.e. in html programming colors can be represented by a 6-digit *hexadecimal number*: FFFFFF represents white,
000000 represents black, and so on.
