## hexadecimal converting back into decimal

To begin with, FFFF does not represent 2^16, but rather 2^16 – 1 (it would not be possible for any power of two to be an odd number). Much like the decimal digits represent quantities of increasing powers of 10, hex digits represent quantities of increasing powers of 16 (in each case, the number whose powers we …

## What’s the correct way to convert bytes to a hex string in Python 3?
