### Understanding Binary and Decimal Conversions

Are you looking to understand the basics of binary and decimal conversions? If so, this blog post is for you! We’ll explore what binary numbers are, how they compare to decimal numbers, and how to convert between them.

By the end of this article, you should have a better understanding of both types of number systems as well as some tips on converting from one system to another.

### What are Binary Numbers?

Binary numbers consist solely of 0s and 1s. This type of numbering system is used in computers because it can be represented electronically by two voltage levels (low or high). It is also known as base-2 because each digit has only two possible values – 0 or 1 – instead of 10 like in our regular decimal numbering system (base-10).

Because there are fewer digits involved with binary than with its counterpart -decimal-, it takes less space when stored digitally which makes it more efficient for computer use.

### What are Decimal Numbers?

Decimals represent numerical values using ten different digits: 0 through 9; thus making up the base-10 number system we commonly use today. With decimals, each place value represents a power that increases by an order magnitude every time we move leftward along the number line (from rightmost position being ones place all way up until tenths place etc.).

For example: if we had 123456789 then 8 would occupy “ones” position while 7 occupies “tenths” spot followed by 6 occupying hundredths spot etc., all adding up together into one single whole integer value representing 123456789 itself!

### How do I Convert Between Binary & Decimal Systems ?

Converting from/to either type involves understanding basic mathematics principles such as powers/exponents but luckily there exist many tools online which help make process much easier including calculators specifically designed just for purpose at hand -binary<->decimal conversion-.

Additionally programming languages like Python provide great resources too where users can write their own scripts tailored towards specific needs when dealing with large amounts data needing conversion between these two formats quickly efficiently without manual intervention required otherwise necessary manually doing same thing over again multiple times per day per week month year etc..

**Finally**YouTube videos provide excellent tutorials teaching viewers step-by–step methods carrying out conversions either direction depending upon task at hand whether going from hexadecimals octal back forth
