# Convert Hexadecimal to Decimal in Java

In one of the previous posts, we covered the conversion of a Decimal to Hexadecimal. Here, you will learn how to convert Hexadecimal to Decimal in Java. We will explore the following ways:

• Using the parseInt() method
• Using custom logic

## Convert Hexadecimal to Decimal in Java using the parseInt() method

Integer class has a static method parseInt(String s, int radix) that parses the String argument as a signed integer in the radix specified by the second argument.

Example

```class Test {

public static void main(String[] args) {

System.out.println(Integer.parseInt("f", 16));
System.out.println(Integer.parseInt("a", 16));
System.out.println(Integer.parseInt("240", 16));
}
}```
Output: 15 10 576

## Parse Hexadecimal to Decimal using custom logic

There is always a way without using predefined methods, like in the following example:

```public class Test {

public static void main(String[] args) {

System.out.println(getDecimal("f"));
System.out.println(getDecimal("a"));
System.out.println(getDecimal("240"));
}

public static int getDecimal(String hexString) {
String digits = "0123456789ABCDEF";
hexString = hexString.toUpperCase();
int value = 0;

for (int i = 0; i < hexString.length(); i++) {
char c = hexString.charAt(i);
int d = digits.indexOf(c);
value = 16 * value + d;
}

return value;
}
}```
Output: 15 10 576

Happy coding!
