Pop Quiz: Hexadecimal basics

Whether you're reading a memory dump or just trying to remember the memory address of a PC's COM ports, understanding hexadecimal math can make the task a bit easier. To test your hexadecimal skills, I've created a quick, five-question quiz that tests you on some hex basics.

Note: Unfortunately, our poll tool, which I use to create each pop quiz, doesn't let me indicate a correct answer after each question. To keep from giving away the answers before everyone has a chance to test his/her knowledge, and ruining all the fun, I'm going to hold off posting the answers until next Friday.
