Start Course
Course Length
1 hour 30 minutes

Course Description

Information is stored, transmitted, and displayed in different ways depending on the type of information and who is using it. As a result, different numbering systems are used to represent that information. Understanding these numbering systems, which can be binary, decimal, or hexadecimal, is an important skill for those who interpret and troubleshoot network systems. In this course, you will learn the four numbering systems used by data systems. You'll explain positional numbering system representations. You'll be able to describe how values are represented using binary, decimal, and hexadecimal numbering systems, as well as be able to convert values between them. Finally, you'll use different methods to determine the base of a value when the base is unknown.


  • A strong foundation of basic networking concepts
