1. ## Hexadecimal answer rather than decimal

Bugger in New Zealand means something like "what a mistake" or mess
I once had a web site oh-bugger.net.nz but people overseas thought I had a sexual problem, so I changed it to dubdubdub.

Anyway getting back to Java I just tried

int hexVal = 0x1a;
System.out.print(" HEX 1a * 4 = " + hexVal*4);

it gives the answer as 104 but that is in decimal, I wonder how we could get a Hexadecimal answer of 68

2. ## Re: Hexadecimal BUGG.....er

Hey Eric,

Try this:

```public class Eric2 {

/**
* JavaProgrammingForums.com
*/
public static void main(String[] args){

int hexVal = ((0x1a)*4);

System.out.println("Decimal value: " +  hexVal);

String hex = Integer.toString(hexVal);

int i = Integer.parseInt(hex);
String hex1 = Integer.toHexString(i);

System.out.println("Hexdecimal value: " + hex1);

}

}```

Output:

Decimal value: 104
Hexdecimal value: 68
