Python's `hex(~)` method converts an integer number to a lowercase hexadecimal string prefixed with `"0x"`. If the provided input is not an integer, it must implement a `__index__()` method to return an integer.

Parameters

1. `x` | `integer`

The integer number to convert to a lowercase hexadecimal string.

Return value

The converted hexadecimal string of the integer prefixed with `"0x"`.

Examples

Basic usage

To return the lowercase hexadecimal string for `87`:

``` hex(87) '0x57' ```

Note that `"0x"` just indicates that it is a hexadecimal string.

__index__() method

To use `hex(~)` method with input that implements `__index__()` method:

``` class score: james = 20 sally = 40 tom = 30 def __index__(self): return self.james + self.sally + self.tomhex(score()) '0x5a' ```

We provide an instance of `score` class as input to the `hex(~)` method. Although the instance itself is not an integer, as it returns an integer (sum of `james + sally + tom`) which in this case is `90`, `hex(~)` returns the hexadecimal string for `90`.

TypeError

If we provide input other than an integer:

``` hex('Hi') TypeError: 'str' object cannot be interpreted as an integer ```
