- The remainders of MOD-2 operation for 17 should be written from MSB to LSB to form the binary equivalent for the given decimal number (17)10.
How-to: What is (17)10 in binary?
The below step-by-step solution shows how to convert (17)10 to its equivalent binary code or number. Arranging or writing the remainders from MSB to LSB of successive MOD-2 operation for decimal 17 forms the binary equivalent of 17.Solved Example:
What is the binary equivalent of 17?
step 1 Observe the input parameters, values and what to be found:
Decimal Number = (41)10
what to be found:
Which binary value is equal to the decimal number 17?
(17)10 = (?)2
step 2 Perform successive MOD-2 operation for decimal 17, and mark the initial remainder as LSB and the final remainder as MSB as like the below:
Successive MOD-2 Operation for 17:
|17 MOD-2||17 / 2 = 8||Remainder is 1 → LSB|
|8 MOD-2||8 / 2 = 4||Remainder is 0|
|4 MOD-2||4 / 2 = 2||Remainder is 0|
|2 MOD-2||2 / 2 = 1||Remainder is 0|
|1 MOD-2||1 / 2 = 0||Remainder is 1 → MSB|
step 3 Write the remainders of MOD-2 operation for 17 from MSB to LSB forms the binary equivalent for 17:
1710 = 100012
the binary equivalent of 17 is (10001)2
