Here's an example:|
For those of you who aren't familiar with hexadecimal base (aka base 16) - instead of the 10 digits of the decimal base there are 16 digits: 0-9 and A-F. A hexadecimal number is prefixed by "0x". 0xA represents 10, 0xB=11, 0xC=12, 0xD=13, 0xE=14 and 0xF=15.
The equivalent of the decimal "tens" number is 16, i.e. just like after the highest decimal digit, 9, comes 10, after the highest hexadecimal digit, 0xF, comes 0x10 (which in decimal is 16*1+1*0=16). In a similar manner, the "hundreds" number is 16*16=256=0x100, and so on.
Question body: a verb which appears twice in Shakespeare's most famous monologue.
Correct answer: be
The Shakespeare quote is "to be or not to be...".
190 is the decimal value of the hexadecimal number BE (noted 0xBE).
0xBE = 0x10*0xB + 0x1*0xE = 16*11 + 14 = 190 (just like we do on the familiar decimal base, keeping in mind that 0x10=16, 0x100=16*16=256 and so on).
Let's try a simple one for starts.
