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

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

1 100 010 110 111 012(10) = 11 1110 1000 0111 0100 0000 1111 1101 1100 1100 1101 0010 0100(2)


3. Determine the signed binary number bit length:

The base 2 number's actual length, in bits: 50.

A signed binary's bit length must be equal to a power of 2, as of:
21 = 2; 22 = 4; 23 = 8; 24 = 16; 25 = 32; 26 = 64; ...

First bit (the leftmost) is reserved for the sign:
0 = positive integer number, 1 = negative integer number

The least number that is:


a power of 2


and is larger than the actual length, 50,


so that the first bit (leftmost) could be zero


(we deal with a positive number at this moment)


is: 64.


4. Positive binary computer representation on 64 bits (8 Bytes):

If needed, add extra 0s in front (to the left) of the base 2 number, up to the required length, 64:

1 100 010 110 111 012(10) = 0000 0000 0000 0011 1110 1000 0111 0100 0000 1111 1101 1100 1100 1101 0010 0100


Number 1 100 010 110 111 012, a signed integer, converted from decimal system (base 10) to signed binary:

1 100 010 110 111 012(10) = 0000 0000 0000 0011 1110 1000 0111 0100 0000 1111 1101 1100 1100 1101 0010 0100

First bit (the leftmost) is reserved for the sign:
0 = positive integer number, 1 = negative integer number

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

Convert signed integer numbers from the decimal system (base ten) to signed binary

How to convert a base 10 signed integer number to signed binary:

1) Divide the positive version of number repeatedly by 2, keeping track of each remainder, till getting a quotient that is 0.

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

3) Construct the positive binary computer representation so that the first bit is 0.

4) Only if the initial number is negative, change the first bit (the leftmost), from 0 to 1. The leftmost bit is reserved for the sign, 1 = negative, 0 = positive.

How to convert signed integers from decimal system to binary code system

Follow the steps below to convert a signed base ten integer number to signed binary:

  • 1. In a signed binary, first bit (the leftmost) is reserved for sign: 0 = positive integer number, 1 = positive integer number. If the number to be converted is negative, start with its positive version.
  • 2. Divide repeatedly by 2 the positive integer number keeping track of each remainder. STOP when we get a quotient that is ZERO.
  • 3. Construct the base 2 representation of the positive 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).
  • 4. Binary numbers represented in computer language have a length of 4, 8, 16, 32, 64, ... bits (power of 2) - if needed, fill in extra '0' bits in front of the base 2 number (to the left), up to the right length; this way the first bit (the leftmost one) is always '0', as for a positive representation.
  • 5. To get the negative reprezentation of the number, simply switch the first bit (the leftmost one), from '0' to '1'.

Example: convert the negative number -63 from decimal system (base ten) to signed binary code system:

  • 1. Start with the positive version of the number: |-63| = 63;
  • 2. Divide repeatedly 63 by 2, keeping track of each remainder, until we get a quotient that is equal to zero:
    • division = quotient + remainder
    • 63 ÷ 2 = 31 + 1
    • 31 ÷ 2 = 15 + 1
    • 15 ÷ 2 = 7 + 1
    • 7 ÷ 2 = 3 + 1
    • 3 ÷ 2 = 1 + 1
    • 1 ÷ 2 = 0 + 1
  • 3. Construct the base 2 representation of the positive number, by taking all the remainders starting from the bottom of the list constructed above:
    63(10) = 11 1111(2)
  • 4. The actual length of base 2 representation number is 6, so the positive binary computer representation length of the signed binary will take in this case 8 bits (the least power of 2 higher than 6) - add extra '0's in front (to the left), up to the required length; this way the first bit (the leftmost one) is to be '0', as for a positive number:
    63(10) = 0011 1111(2)
  • 5. To get the negative integer number representation simply change the first bit (the leftmost), from '0' to '1':
    -63(10) = 1011 1111
  • Number -63(10), signed integer, converted from decimal system (base 10) to signed binary = 1011 1111
