Is 0xFF is valid?

    X

    I think it's true. But most of AC answer is false.


  • 0
    M

    There is no test case requiring that the accepted algorithm return true for hexadecimal numbers. I don't know if it is simply not tested, or if there is a case where it is a valid hexadecimal number and it expects false. Therefore, it's safer to simply view hexadecimal as not a valid number for the purposes of this problem.

    As a side note, it is allowed to have "3.54E9", so how do you tell the difference between exponential and not in hex? ("0x3.54E9" vs "0x3.54 * 16^9") Avoiding that problem is probably why hex is treated as invalid here.
