    In the hexadecimal system, you count from 0 to F. So you get A, B, C, D, E, and F as the extra digits. How many 3, 4, 6 or more letter words can you find using those letters?

    Hexadecimal number system uses the symbols 0 to 9 followed by A to F. Sixteen symbols, hence hexadecimal.

    Do the individual letters themselves count as words?

    A (a fruit)
    BE (to be)
    FA (In singing)
