Binary to Decimal

Learn different methods of converting a binary number into a decimal number.

The C language does not understand the binary number system. That’s why if you want to store 10110110 in 2 bytes through a C program, we won’t be able to use these bit patterns directly. So, we need to convert these binary numbers into decimal numbers. This conversion can be done using the following methods:

  • Positional notation
  • Remember the weight associated with each bit
  • Binary to hexadecimal

Let’s discuss these methods one by one.
