Precise your question.
Basically it is meaningless, database store numbers, and you make them what you want.
Unless you want the database natively uses hexadecimal arithmetic and other stuff like. This does not exist (and will never exist) but you can create your own procedure to achieve this.

Procedure:
SqL Reference, CREATE PROCEDURE, a package should be better for this.
PL/SQL User's Guide and Reference
Application Developer's Guide - Fundamentals

You can make all what you want, just a matter of programming.
