Consider a decimal number:               7654.32

 

Short hand for:            7 * 103 + 6*102 + 5* 101 + 4*100 + 3*10-1 + 2*10-2

 

Likewise binary number:                     1011.011

 

In full:                         1*23 + 0*22 + 1* 21 + 1*20 + 0* 2-1 + 1* 2-2 + 1*2-3

 

In general the number:                        x­2 x1 x0 . x-1 x-2 x-3

 

In base B is equal to:   x­ B2 + x1  B1 + x B0 + x-1  B-1 + x-2  B-2 + x-3 B-3

Convert decimal to binary by repeated division by two.

 

 e.g. 2510 in binary?

 

25

  2  =

remainder 1

 

Read remainders from bottom up.

Convert decimals less than one to binary by repeated multiplication by two.

 

 e.g. 0.62510 in binary?

 

0.625

  2  =

1.25

whole number 1

0.25

  2  =

0.5

whole number 0

0.5

  2  =

1.0

whole number 1

 

Read whole numbers from top down.

 

Therefore 25.62510 = 11001.1012
