I understood how to convert one system of representation to other. Here is an example of converting hexa to decimal.
13*16^0 + 7*16^1
13*1 + 7*16
But what is the x in 0x7D?,

It sure does, it's a way of telling java that a number begining with 0x or 0X is a hexadecimal!
0x22 != 22
same goes for octal, they start of with a leading zero
(octal) 055 != 55 (interger)

Thanks Rajinder:
O or OX declare that it is octal or hexa decimal number but they do not contribute to the value while converting them to the decimal.
Am I right?
