Integer.MIN_VALUE in binary is 1000 0000 0000 0000 0000 0000 0000 0000 since int is 4 byte deep. Each 4 bits comprise one hex digit (from 0000=0 to 1111=F). So, we get 80000000. Hope this helps.

Integer.MIN_VALUE
----------------
Decimal : -2147483648
Binary : 1000 0000 0000 0000 0000 0000 0000 0000
Hexadecimal : 8 0 0 0 0 0 0 0
As you can see every 4 bits in binary is represented by 1 bit in hex, so 1000 becomes 8 and the rest is zero as you can see.
Hope this helps.
