i am working on my hexadecimal to binary conversions and i was trying out some examples of them
I took a hex physical address- 00-1C-DF-4C-68-AB and I had to convert it to binary pairs and this is what i got when I tried to convert it to binary pairs
00011100110111110100110001101000101010

is this right? if someone could let me know i would be happy


thank you

ok thanks... i also have another question....is the binary format right? because i was supposed to convert it into what they called binary pairs, and i just have a long string of binary digits but i don't know if they are pairs, I don't think i have ever done binary pairs, i can convert to binary but i have never heard of binary pairs.

By binary pair they mean the binary pair of the hexadecimal digits, meaning to pair the binary representation with the Hex digit(s) it represents. As you are converting a MAC address, which has it's Hex digits in groups of two, you would use 8 binary digits to "pair" with each group of Hex digits.
So the binary Pair for AB is 10101011.
The full binary string for 00-1C-DF-4C-68-AB would be:
00000000-00011100-11011111-01001100-01101000-10101011

A binary pair of an Octal number would be grouped in multiples of 3 digits
