Conversion of number system – Binary to Decimal

You are currently viewing Conversion of number system – Binary to Decimal

In this article we will learn to convert a number from binary to decimal through some example. We have to learn two rules for converting a number from binary to its equivalent decimal. First rule is for integer number where the second is for fraction number. Now, let’s go ahead with these two rule.

Rules for integer number

Example : Conversion of 10110102 to the equivalent decimal number

Solution : 

  (1011010)2
= 1 × 26 + 0 × 25 + 1 × 24 + 1 × 23 + 0 × 22 + 1 × 21 + 0 × 20
= 64 + 0 + 16 + 8 + 0 + 2 + 0
= 90

We can apply another method to convert this number from binary to decimal. See the method bellow.

That means , we have got the decimal equivalence of this number is 90. Now, let’s see the rules for converting the fraction number.

Rules for fraction number

Example : Convert 0.11012 to its equivalent decimal number

Solution : 

(0.1101)2
= 1 × 2-1 + 1 × 2-2 + 0 × 2-3 + 1 × 2-4
= 0.5 + 0.25 + 0 + 0.0625
= 0.8125

So, the result after converting of this binary fraction number to decimal is 0.8125

See the following full example if you have successfully completed all the rules which we have given here in this article. This  will clear all of your doubt about convert a number from binary to decimal.

Example : Conversion of 1111111.01012 to equivalent decimal number.

Solution : 

To convert this binary number to its equivalent decimal number we have to convert separately its integer part and fraction part. You can use our given rules for this purpose.

Lets see the conversion of its integer part first.

(1111111)2
= 1 × 26 + 1 × 25 + 1 × 24 + 1 × 23 + 1 × 22 + 1 × 21 + 1 × 20
= 64 + 32 + 16 + 8 + 4 + 2 + 1
= 90

The another method for this conversion is as follows;

We will now convert its fraction part from binary to decimal number. Let’s see the figure bellow.

(0.0101)2
= 0 × 2-1 + 1 × 2-2 + 0 × 2-3 + 1 × 2-4
= 0 + 0.25 + 0 + 0.0625
= 0.3125

So, the total decimal equivalence of this binary number will be (127.3125)10 . These rules are applicable for any other number to convert them as well. You can convert any binary number to its equivalent decimal number by this rules.
