the result (uncommenting all the lines) is:

3, 9, 11, 17

Can anyone explain to me why 17 is printed?

thx

I do understand the lines that are commented, but the last one I don't

hi

so u didn't understand that "why the last output number is 17?"

well, how did u understand the other output numbers? they r in some "radix" right? first is binary, second is octal, third is decimal and forth is?? - Hexadecimal (base 16).

base for,

binary is -2

octal is -8

decimal is - 10

hexadecimal is - 16

so the 11 in,

binary = 2*1 + 1 = 3

octal = 64*0 + 8*1 + 1 = 9

decimal = 10*1 + 1 = 11

hexadecimal = 16*1 +1 = 17

thats how we get 17.

did i address ur problem?

its just different radix systems...
