LeetCode: Convert a Number to Hexadecimal

LeetCode: Convert a Number to Hexadecimal

Given an integer, write an algorithm to convert it to hexadecimal. For negative integer, two’s complement method is used.

Note:

  1. All letters in hexadecimal (a-f) must be in lowercase.
  2. The hexadecimal string must not contain extra leading 0s. If the number is zero, it is represented by a single zero character ‘0’; otherwise, the first character in the hexadecimal string will not be the zero character.
  3. The given number is guaranteed to fit within the range of a 32-bit signed integer. You must not use any method provided by the library which converts/formats the number to hex directly.

    Example 1:

    1
    2
    3
    4
    5
    Input:
    26

    Output:
    "1a"

Example 2:
