Program to convert a Binary Number to Hexa-Decimal Number
• Last Updated : 11 Jun, 2021

Given a Binary Number, the task is to convert this Binary number to its equivalent Hexa-Decimal Number.
Examples:

Input: 100000101111
Output: 82F
Explanation:
Dividing the number into chunks of 4, it becomes 1000 0010 1111
Here, 1000 is equivalent to 8
0010 is equivalent to 2 and
1111 is equivalent to F
Therefore, the number becomes 82F
Input:10101101
Output:AD
Explanation:
Dividing the number into chunks of 4, it becomes 1010 1101
Here, 1010 is equivalent to A and
1101 is equivalent to D
Therefore, the number becomes AD

Approach:

1. Divide the given Binary number into chunks of 4, and start computing its equivalent HexaDecimal form.
2. Store this number formed in a vector.
3. Repeat the process for all the digits of the given Binary number.
4. Print the numbers stored in the vector in reverse order.

Below is the implementation of the above approach:
