Hexadecimal num to ASCII code

  1. Sep 16, 2014 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    Give the ASCII code for the hexadecimal number B7.CF (including the code for the hexadecimal point)

    3. The attempt at a solution

    This was one of the questions given on a problem sheet in my computer science class. I missed the exact lecture when this was taught so I don't know exactly what to do, but I have a few ideas. When getting the ASCII code does the question mean the binary representation? If so do you just concatenate the binary numbers you get? So like this 0100 0010 0011 0111 0010 1110 0100 0011 0100 0110

    There are 5 standard ASCII characters in that string, so I think the answer expects 5 numbers, each number being a decimal integer in the range 0..127 and being the ASCII representation of one character.
