1 MATHCOUNTS TOOLBOX Facts, Formulas and Tricks

2 Lesson 5: Different Bases base 10 to base 2

3 Base 10: decimal – only has digits 0 - 9

4 Changing from Base 10 to Base 2: binary – only has digits 0, 1

5 What is the base 2 representation of 125 base 10 or 125 10 = ? 2

6 We know 125 = 1(10 2 ) + 2(10 1 ) + 5(10 0 ) = 100 + 20 + 5, but what is it equal to in base 2?

7 125 10 = ?(2 n ) + ?(2 n-1 ) + … + ?(2 0 )

8 The largest power of 2 in 125 is 64 = 2 6, so we now know our base 2 number will be:

9 ?(2 6 ) + ?(2 5 ) + ?(2 4 ) + ?(2 3 ) + ?(2 2 ) + ?(2 1 )+ ?(2 0 ) and it will have 7 digits

10 Since there is one 64, we have: 1(2 6 ) + ?(2 5 ) + ?(2 4 ) + ?(2 3 ) + ?(2 2 ) + ?(2 1 )+ ?(2 0 )

11 We now have 125 – 64 = 61 left over, which is one 32 = 2 5 and 29 left over,

12 so we have: 1(2 6 ) + 1(2 5 ) + ?(2 4 ) + ?(2 3 ) + ?(2 2 ) + ?(2 1 )+ ?(2 0 )

13 In the left-over 29, there is one 16 = 2 4, with 13 left over,

14 so we have: 1(2 6 ) + 1(2 5 ) + 1 (2 4 ) + ?(2 3 ) + ?(2 2 ) + ?(2 1 )+ ?(2 0 )

15 In the left-over 13, there is one 8 = 2 3, with 5 left over,

16 so we have: 1(2 6 ) + 1(2 5 ) + 1(2 4 ) + 1(2 3 ) + ?(2 2 ) + ?(2 1 )+ ?(2 0 )

17 In the left-over 5, there is one 4 = 2 2, with 1 left over,

18 so we have: 1(2 6 ) + 1(2 5 ) + 1(2 4 ) + 1(2 3 ) + 1(2 2 ) + ?(2 1 )+ ?(2 0 )

19 In the left-over 1, there is no 2 = 2 1, so we still have 1 left over,

20 and our expression is: 1(2 6 ) + 1(2 5 ) + 1(2 4 ) + 1(2 3 ) + 1(2 2 ) + 0(2 1 )+ ?(2 0 )

21 The left-over 1 is one 2 0, so we finally have:

22 1(2 6 ) + 1(2 5 ) + 1(2 4 ) + 1(2 3 ) + 1(2 2 ) + 0(2 1 )+ 1(2 0 ) =

23 1(2 6 ) + 1(2 5 ) + 1(2 4 ) + 1(2 3 ) + 1(2 2 ) + 0(2 1 )+ 1(2 0 ) = 1111101 2

24 125 10 = 1111101 2

25 Fini!
