    55 in Binary

    Decimal 55 in binary conversion provides the detailed information on what is the binary equivalent of (55)10, and the step-by-step work for how to convert the decimal (base-10) number 55 to its binary (base-2) equivalent.

    (55)10 in binary is equal to:
    (55)10 = (?)2
    Perform successive MOD-2 operation for decimal 55, and mark the initial remainder as LSB and the final remainder as MSB as like the below.

    55 MOD-2     55 / 2 = 27  Remainder is 1 → LSB
    27 MOD-2     27 / 2 = 13  Remainder is 1
    13 MOD-2     13 / 2 = 6  Remainder is 1
    6 MOD-2     6 / 2 = 3  Remainder is 0
    3 MOD-2     3 / 2 = 1  Remainder is 1
    1 MOD-2     1 / 2 = 0  Remainder is 1 → MSB
    Arrange the remainders from MSB to LSB forms the binary equivalent of 55.
    5510 = 1101112

    Hence,
    55 in binary is 110111

    where,
    5510 is the given decimal number,
    10 in 5510 represents the base-10 or decimal number system,
    1101112 is the binary equivalent of the decimal 41,
    2 in 1101112 represents the base-2 or binary number system.

    Important Notes: (55)10 in Binary
    The below are some of the important notes to be remembered while converting the base-10 number 55 into a binary number.
    1. The initial or first remainder while performing MOD-2 operation for 55 is a Least Significant Bit (LSB).
    2. The last remainder while performing MOD-2 operation for 55 is a Most Significant Bit (MSB).
    3. The remainders of MOD-2 operation for 55 should be written from MSB to LSB to form the binary equivalent for the given decimal number (55)10.
