Denary to Binary Converter
For those who don't know what I mean by Binary and by Denary, here is a brief description:
Firstly, what is the denary number system? Well it is the number system you are most familiar with. All numbers 1,2,11,35,134 etc are called denary numbers.
The denary number system is a base 10 number system, it is made of of 1ís, 10ís, 100ís etc, all of which are the base 10 to a power.
The binary number system is a base 2 number system, it is made of 1ís, 2s, 4ís etc, all of which are the base 2 to a power. We can look at this is the following way:
Included above is an example of the number 14. What we are
Saying is that 14 is made up of 1*2^3 + 1*2^2 + 1*2^1 + 0*2^0. This would be written with the highest power at the front, so 14 = 1110.
