Note......if you go to WolframAlpha and type in  "convert -17 to hexadecimal"....it will return  " -1116"

In other words  -17 =  -11 in hex.......which is correct...!!!

This confirms Alan's suspicions.......

If you want them to!  There is no reason in principle why you can't have negative hexadecimal numbers, after all they are just numbers expressed in base 16.  That said, I don't think I've ever seen them being used anywhere (negative ones, that is).
