Hashing is the process of converting a given key to another value by using a hash function that is used to generate the new value according to a mathematical algorithm. The result of a hash function is known as a hash value(hash code) or simply, a hash. Hashing refers to the way that uses some function or algorithm to map object data to some representative integer value. It can be used as a way to narrow down our search when looking for the item on the map.
