## Converting A Binary Number to Decimal and to Hexadecimal

In order to be able to convert a decimal number to binary, one must have a basic understanding of the decimal, binary and hexadecimal numbering systems. Decimal numbers are used often in mathematics, and are 10 digits (0 - 9), which occupy a decimal place. Binary numbers are 1s and 0s to us, but to computers the number one represents the high or on setting and the number zero, would mean low or off setting in a computer. Binary is used in order to represent computer data, and it can be grouped together into bytes.
