Enter binary number: 2 Decimal number: 10 Decimal from signed 8/16/32 bit: 10 Hex number: 16

It is a calculator that converts the binary codes to decimals. It has a single text field where you enter the values to be converted to decimals. It has three active controls that function independently. The results will be displayed below the controls indicating the decimal number, decimal from signed 8/16/32 bit and Hex number.

This calculator gives accurate results depending on the values entered in the text field. The ‘Convert' button is used to execute the calculation from binary code to decimals. The ‘Reset' button is used to erase the previous calculations from the converter. If you want to alternate the flow of calculations, the ‘Swap' button will be useful allowing you to convert the values in decimals to binary codes.

For example;

Find the decimal number if the binary code is 01100001.

Solution;

Enter the value 01100001 in the blank text field and click the ‘Convert' button. The results will be displayed as;

Decimal number: 97

Decimal from signed 8/16/32 bit: 97

Hex number: 61

The formula of converting binary to decimal

The decimal number is calculated by multiplying the sum of binary digits (dn) by the power of 2 (2n).

Decimal = d0 x 20 + d1 x 22 + …

The binary number with n digits are represented as dn-1 … d3 d2 d1 d0

You can also use the Binary to the decimal conversion table to determine the simple binary number. This converter can only execute a single conversion at a time and hence the ‘Reset' button would prove useful in adjusting the calculator. It is always important to confirm the binary codes entered in the blank text field since the calculator gives accurate results depending on the input. It is efficient because of the speed it delivers when performing any conversions from the Binary to decimals.
