𝗜𝗻 𝗣𝘆𝘁𝗵𝗼𝗻, sum=0 a="a46fe47f78a4859de8313e27424a60a7" for i in range(len(a)-1,0,-1): sum+=16*i+(int(a[i]) if not a[i].isalpha() else 9+ord(a[i])-96) print(sum) All i did is conversion of the above hex string into integer. There are programming languages like python that provide function for this conversion without having to write all that code . For example , print(int(a, 16))

Sylvie if you run the code i posted in first comment, it gives a very different value than what you get from print(int(a, 16)) so obviously it was wrong that i corrected second time. And sorry, but i am not into the decoding field. You can open up a new question for that.

Sylvie Sorry , but there is a little mistake in calculating the value, here is the correct code for it . sum+=16**(len(a)-1-i)*(int(a[i]) if not a[i].isalpha() else 9+ord(a[i])-96)
