## Decimal number

A decimal number system is positional numeral system employing 10 as the base. It uses 10 different symbols 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8 and 9.
It is the standard system for denoting integer and non-integer numbers. Decimal number refers to the notation of number in the decimal system (base-10), which contains a decimal separator. In this system the number 423.15 represents the sum ( 4 × 102 ) + ( 2 × 101 ) + ( 3 × 100 ) + ( 1 × 10−1 ) + ( 5 × 10−2 ). Humans mostly use the decimal system. You can convert decimal number to binary with our converter.

## Binary number

A binary number is a number which is expressed in the base-2 numeral system. This system is the simplest kind of number system. It uses only two symbols 0 and 1. These can be used to represent all other numbers. The rightmost digit represents one, with each digit to the left doubling in value. Binary numbers can do arithmetic operations. For example addition, subtraction, multiplication or division. It is used by modern computer-based devices and computers because of easy implementation in digital electronic circuitry.

## How to convert decimal to binary

Decimal to binary method 1: Positional notation
A positional notation is a numeral system in which each position is related to the next by a constant multiplier, which is called the base or radix. In the binary system, the weight of each digit increases by a factor of 2. The first digit has a weight of 2 0, the second digit has a weight of 2 1 and so on.

The decimal number is equal to the sum: 72308 = 7*10 4 + 2*10 3 + 3*10 2 + 0*10 1 + 8*10 0

Decimal to binary method 2: Division by 2
This is an easy method of converting decimal to a binary number. Equivalents to write down the decimal number and to continually divide by 2 to give a result and a remainder of either a 1 or a 0 until the final result is zero. For example convert decimal number 185 to binary looks like:
