Denary to Binary Converter

Here is my binary converter. This converter uses the raw maths for creating a binary number instead of using a pre-made function. It is one of the first pieces of fully functional javascript I made and thats why I wanted to do it.

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:

Base 2^n2^02^12^22^3

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.

Enter a denary or binary number below and choose the appropriate button:
