# Program for Hexadecimal to Decimal

• Difficulty Level : Easy
• Last Updated : 14 Sep, 2021

Given a hexadecimal number as input, we need to write a program to convert the given hexadecimal number into an equivalent decimal number.

Examples:

```Input : 67
Output: 103

Input : 512
Output: 1298

Input : 123
Output: 291```

We know that hexadecimal number uses 16 symbols {0, 1, 2, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, A, B, C, D, E, F} to represent all numbers. Here, (A, B, C, D, E, F) represents (10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15).

The idea is to extract the digits of a given hexadecimal number starting from the rightmost digit and keep a variable dec_value. At the time of extracting digits from the hexadecimal number, multiply the digit with the proper base (Power of 16) and add it to the variable dec_value. In the end, the variable dec_value will store the required decimal number.

For Example: If the hexadecimal number is 1A.
dec_value = 1*(16^1) + 10*(16^0) = 26

The below diagram explains how to convert a hexadecimal number (1AB) to an equivalent decimal value: Below is the implementation of the above idea.

## C++
