## What is the binary number system?

The binary number system is a base 2 number system. It only uses the digits 0 and 1. On the other hand, decimal is a base 10 number system since it uses ten digits, 0 to 9.

Often you’ll need to convert a binary number to its decimal value since most people use the decimal system. Binary numbers are often used in computing applications.

## What is the decimal number system?

In mathematics, the decimal system, also called the Hindu-Arabic number system or Arabic number system, is a positional numeral system that uses 10 as the base and requires 10 different numerals, the digits 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9. It also requires a dot (decimal point) to represent decimal fractions.

In this scheme, the numerals denoting a number take different place values depending upon the position.

## How to Convert Binary to Decimal

You can use the positional notation method to convert a binary number to a decimal. To use this method, multiply each digit in the binary number from the rightmost to the left by 2 to the power of n, where n is the distance from the right.

So, reading the binary number from right to left, the furthest digit to the right is equal to the digit times 2 to the power 0. The integer that is one position from the right is similar to the digit times 2 to the power 1.

### Binary to Decimal Formula

decimal number10 = (d0 × 20) + (d1 × 21) + … + (dn-1 × 2n-1)

## Examples

convert the binary number 1011 to decimal
decimal number = (1 x 23) + (0 x 22) + (1 x 21) + (1 x 20)
decimal number = 1110
convert the binary number 101101 to decimal
decimal number = (1 x 25) + (0 x 24) + (1 x 23) + (1 x 22) + (0 x 21) + (1 x 20)
decimal number = 4510
convert the binary number 1011010 to decimal
decimal number = (1 x 26) + (0 x 25) + (1 x 24) + (1 x 23) + (0 x 22) + (1 x 21) + (0 x 20)
decimal number = 9010
