If you were talking about this then you were wrong.

Hexadecimal indicates "sixteen", not "ten with an additional six", like you said.
"Hexadeca-" is a Greek and Latin prefix for "sixteen", not "ten with an additional six", like you said.

For example, a hexadecagon is a 16-sided polygon.

And hex is a well-known slang for "hexadecimal", silly.

"1. Also, hex."

Also, "hex" is a curse.
"Hex" does not mean "base 6". For that, the word is something like "hectal" (not exactly sure).
which is neither hexadecimal nor hex
