# Check if a string represents a hexadecimal number or not

• Last Updated : 13 Apr, 2021

Given an alphanumeric string S of length N, the task is to check if the given string represents a hexadecimal number or not. Print Yes if it represents a hexadecimal number. Otherwise, print No.

Examples:

Input: S = “BF57C”
Output: Yes
Explanation:
Decimal Representation of the given string = 783740

Input: S = “58GK”
Output: No

Approach: The approach is based on the idea that all the elements of a hexadecimal number lie between characters A to F or between integers 0 to 9. Below are the steps to solve the problem:

1. Iterate over the given string.
2. Check if each character of the string is between characters A to F or between 0 and 9.
3. If found to be true, then print Yes.
4. Otherwise, print No.

Below is the implementation of the above approach:

## C++

 `// C++ implementation of the above approach``#include ``using` `namespace` `std;` `// Function to check if the string``// represents a hexadecimal number``void` `checkHex(string s)``{``    ` `    ``// Size of string``    ``int` `n = s.length();` `    ``// Iterate over string``    ``for``(``int` `i = 0; i < n; i++)``    ``{``        ``char` `ch = s[i];` `        ``// Check if the character``        ``// is invalid``        ``if` `((ch < ``'0'` `|| ch > ``'9'``) &&``            ``(ch < ``'A'` `|| ch > ``'F'``))``        ``{``            ``cout << ``"No"` `<< endl;``            ``return``;``        ``}``    ``}` `    ``// Print true if all``    ``// characters are valid``    ``cout << ``"Yes"` `<< endl;``}` `// Driver code    ``int` `main()``{``    ` `    ``// Given string``    ``string s = ``"BF57C"``;` `    ``// Function call``    ``checkHex(s);` `    ``return` `0;``}` `// This code is contributed by divyeshrabadiya07`
