## Bases

A base is a set of symbols (digits) that can be used to represent a value (number).

- Decimal base = 0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9
- Hexadecimal base = 0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 A B C D E F (a = 10, b = 11, ...)

The significance of each digit depends on its position (power of N, where N is the number of digits in the base).
