**BINARY NUMBERS: Simple Decimal To Binary. **

This example of Decimal to Binary conversion uses whole or integer numbers, later we will go on to look at numbers with decimal parts. The calculation is simple, especially on a computer as it just uses repetitive division; the remainder will always be a 1 or a 0, thereby, generating the binary equivalent.

Remember to read the number from bottom to top. The top is the least significant binary digit.

To ensure the output is always an eight-bit binary number or byte, we insert zeros to the left of the result. This is not essential, it just makes binary numbers easier to compare.
