Python Code Example: convert decimal to hexadecimal number

This code converts a decimal number to a hexadecimal number. The function takes in a single parameter x, which represents the decimal number that is to be converted.

The function starts by using the built-in hex function in Python to convert the decimal number x to its equivalent hexadecimal representation. The hexadecimal representation is returned as a string with the prefix 0x attached to it, e.g. 0x8c for the decimal number 140.

Next, the string is split using the split method with the argument 'x'. This will result in a list with two elements: ['0', '8c']. The second element of the list, '8c', is the hexadecimal representation without the 0x prefix. This is obtained using the [-1] list indexing syntax.

Finally, the function returns the hexadecimal representation without the prefix as the output.

When the code is executed, it calls the decToHex function with the argument 140. This will result in the hexadecimal representation of 140, '8c', being printed to the console.

def decToHex(x):
    return hex(x).split('x')[-1]
