Tool to make binary conversions. Binary code is a numeric system using base 2 used in informatics, symbols used in binary notation are generally zero and one (0 and 1).

The binary is often used to encode text in ASCII, use the dedicated page to translate binary into text:

To convert a number $ N $ to binary (format with zeroes and ones) consists in an arithmetic base conversion from base 10 (decimal base noted $ N_{10} $) to base 2 (natural **binary code** noted $ N_{2} $).

__Example:__ $ 5_{10} = 1 \times 2^2 + 0 \times 2^1 + 1 \times 2^0 = 101_{2} $

The method consists in making successive divisions by $ 2 $ and noting the remainder ($ 0 $ or $ 1 $) in the reverse order.

__Example:__ With the number 6: $ 6/2 = 3 $ remains $ 0 $, then $ 3/2 = 1 $ remains $ 1 $, then $ 1/2 = 0 $ remains $ 1 $. The successive remainders are $ 0,1,1 $ so $ 6_{10} $ is written $ 110_{2} $ **in binary**.

Associate with each letter of the alphabet a number, for example by using the A1Z26 code or the ASCII code. This will replace each letter by a number that can then be converted to binary (see above).

__Example:__ AZ is 65,90 (ASCII code) so 1000001,1011010 **in binary**

Similarly for binary to text translation, convert the binary to a number and then associate that number with a letter in the desired code.

It is a base conversion from base 2 to base 10

__Example:__ 111 (base 2) = 1*2^2+1*2^1+1*2^0 = 7 (base 10)

A bit (contraction of binary digit) is a symbol in the binary notation: 0 or 1.

In computer informatics, size is limited, numbers are stocked in memory cells of size N where N is the number of bits.

This depends on the size of the number, here are the min-max intervals:

0-1 | 1 |

2-3 | 2 |

4-7 | 3 |

8-15 | 4 |

16-31 | 5 |

32-63 | 6 |

64-127 | 7 |

128-255 | 8 |

256-511 | 9 |

512-1023 | 10 |

1024-2047 | 11 |

2048-4095 | 12 |

2^(n-1) - (2^n)-1 | n |

In informatics, one's complement is writing a number negatively inversing 0 and 1.

__Example:__ 0111 becomes 1000, so 7 becomes -7

In informatics, one's complement is writing a number negatively inversing 0 and 1 and adding 1.

__Example:__ 0111 becomes 1001

There are 10 kinds of people in the world, those that understand binary, and those that don't...

10 **in binary** equals 2 in decimal.
