## Decimal To Binary Conversion

A decimal number system is a base 10 number system. It means that a decimal number can be formed by using any of the 0-9 digits (10 base elements). On the other hand, the binary number system has base 2. It means that a binary number can be formed by using 0 and 1 (2 base elements) only.To convert a decimal number into binary value you need to divide the decimal number continuously by 2.

The diagram below explains decimal to binary conversion process :

In above diagram

**LSB**stands for

**Least Significant Bit**and

**MSB**stands for

**Most Significant Bit**. To get binary value corresponding to given decimal we need to divide it continuously by 2 until we get 0 as quotient.

After the division process stops, look for the remainders write them starting from the

**MSB**.

So

**24**in decimal is equivalent to

**11000**in binary number system.
