Convert 279 980 from base ten (10) to base two (2): write the number as an unsigned binary, convert the positive integer in the decimal system

279 980(10) to an unsigned binary (base 2) = ?

1. Divide the number repeatedly by 2:

Keep track of each remainder.

We stop when we get a quotient that is equal to zero.

  • division = quotient + remainder;
  • 279 980 ÷ 2 = 139 990 + 0;
  • 139 990 ÷ 2 = 69 995 + 0;
  • 69 995 ÷ 2 = 34 997 + 1;
  • 34 997 ÷ 2 = 17 498 + 1;
  • 17 498 ÷ 2 = 8 749 + 0;
  • 8 749 ÷ 2 = 4 374 + 1;
  • 4 374 ÷ 2 = 2 187 + 0;
  • 2 187 ÷ 2 = 1 093 + 1;
  • 1 093 ÷ 2 = 546 + 1;
  • 546 ÷ 2 = 273 + 0;
  • 273 ÷ 2 = 136 + 1;
  • 136 ÷ 2 = 68 + 0;
  • 68 ÷ 2 = 34 + 0;
  • 34 ÷ 2 = 17 + 0;
  • 17 ÷ 2 = 8 + 1;
  • 8 ÷ 2 = 4 + 0;
  • 4 ÷ 2 = 2 + 0;
  • 2 ÷ 2 = 1 + 0;
  • 1 ÷ 2 = 0 + 1;

2. Construct the base 2 representation of the positive number:

Take all the remainders starting from the bottom of the list constructed above.


Number 279 980(10), a positive integer (no sign),
converted from decimal system (base 10)
to an unsigned binary (base 2):

279 980(10) = 100 0100 0101 1010 1100(2)

Spaces used to group digits: for binary, by 4; for decimal, by 3.

How to convert a base 10 positive integer number to base 2:

1) Divide the number repeatedly by 2, keeping track of each remainder, until getting a quotient that is equal to 0;

2) Construct the base 2 representation by taking all the previously calculated remainders starting from the last remainder up to the first one, in that order.

How to convert unsigned integer numbers (positive) from decimal system (base 10) to binary = simply convert from base ten to base two

Follow the steps below to convert a base ten unsigned integer number to base two:

  • 1. Divide repeatedly by 2 the positive integer number that has to be converted to binary, keeping track of each remainder, until we get a QUOTIENT that is equal to ZERO.
  • 2. Construct the base 2 representation of the positive integer number, by taking all the remainders starting from the bottom of the list constructed above. Thus, the last remainder of the divisions becomes the first symbol (the leftmost) of the base two number, while the first remainder becomes the last symbol (the rightmost).

Example: convert the positive integer number 55 from decimal system (base ten) to binary code (base two):

  • 1. Divide repeatedly 55 by 2, keeping track of each remainder, until we get a quotient that is equal to zero:
    • division = quotient + remainder;
    • 55 ÷ 2 = 27 + 1;
    • 27 ÷ 2 = 13 + 1;
    • 13 ÷ 2 = 6 + 1;
    • 6 ÷ 2 = 3 + 0;
    • 3 ÷ 2 = 1 + 1;
    • 1 ÷ 2 = 0 + 1;
  • 2. Construct the base 2 representation of the positive integer number, by taking all the remainders starting from the bottom of the list constructed above:
    55(10) = 11 0111(2)
  • Number 5510, positive integer (no sign), converted from decimal system (base 10) to unsigned binary (base 2) = 11 0111(2)
