Program to convert a BCD to Hexa-Decimal Number
  • Last Updated : 28 Sep, 2020

Given a BCD (Binary Coded Decimal) Number, the task is to convert this Binary Coded Decimal 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 BCD 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 BCD number.
  4. Print the numbers stored in the vector in reverse order.

Below is the implementation of the above approach:
