This question already has an answer here:
Using different numbering systems/notations, "normal" decimal numeric expressions can be presented variously.
For example, my age (57) is represented in hexadecimal as "39"
However, once I'm 58, it would be "3A"
How are hex numbers pronounced? Is it proper (ethics aside) to say that (in hexadecimal) I'm "thirty-nine"? Or is it pronounced "three nine" or some other way?
And what about "3A" - would it be "thirty ten" or "three A" or...???
Of course, the same question applies to other numbering systems: octal, or one of your own derivation, etc.
