In lecture (2), we have studied the conversion from any number system to the decimal one, i.e.

In this lecture, we are going to study the conversions in the reverse direction, i.e.

Ex1: Convert the decimal number 174.390625 to its equivalent binary number

Therefore, the binary number (10101110.011001)2 is exact equivalent to the decimal number (174.390625)10

Ex2: Obtain the equivalent binary number of the decimal number 47.763 with a precision of 7-binary digits

Therefore, the number (10111.1100001)2 is the approximate binary equivalent to the decimal number (47.763)10 with a precision of 7-binary digits .

Ex2: Find the equivalent octal number of the decimal number 95.236 with a precision up to 4 octal digits.

Therefore, the number (137.1706)8 is the approximate octal equivalent to the decimal number (95.236)10 with a precision of 4-octal digits

Ex1: Convert the decimal number 247.390625 to its equivalent hexadecimal number

Therefore, the number (F7.64)16 is the exact hexadecimal equivalent to the decimal

number (247.390625)10

1. Indirect conversion

By using the decimal system as the intermediate number system, i.e. B D O

O D B

2. Direct Conversion

Each 3-binary digits are replaced by one octal digit , and vice versa , using the following table:

Octal

Binary

Ex1: Convert the binary number 1001101.1011 to octal

First Solution (indirect method)

Convert the binary number to decimal, then convert the decimal to octal.

(1001101.1011)2 = 1*26 +0*25 + 0*24 +1*23 + 1*22 + 0*21 + 1*20 + 1*2-1 + 0*2-2 + 1*2-3 + 1*2-4 = 64 + 8 + 4 + 1 + 0.5 + 0.125 + 0.0625 = (77.6875)10

Thus, (1001101.1011)2 = (77.6875)10 = (115.54)8

Second Solution (direct method)

Start from the binary point and move to the right and to the left grouping each 3-binary digits as one octal digit. Adding 0’s to the extreme right (or left) is allowed.

Thus, (1001101.1011)2 = (115.54)8

Ex2: Convert the octal number 115.54 to binary

Solution (direct method)

1 1 5 . 5 4

001 001 101 . 101 100

Thus, (115.54)8 = (001001101.101100)2

or (115.54)8 = (1001101.1011)2

1. Indirect conversion

By using the decimal system as the intermediate number system, i.e. B D H

H D B

2. Direct Conversion

Each 4-binary digits are replaced by one hexadecimal digit, and vice versa, Using the following table:

Hexadecimal

Binary

Ex: Convert the hexadecimal number 3BC. 2E directly to its equivalent binary number.

Solution

Thus, (3BC.2E)16 = (001110111100.00101110)2

Ex: Convert the binary number 111010.11011 directly to its equivalent hexadecimal number

Solution

Start from the binary point and move to the right and to the left grouping each 4- binary digits as one hexadecimal digit. Adding 0’s to the extreme right (or left) is allowed. Thus, we have:

(111010.11011)2

=(00111010.11011000)2

=( 3 A . D 8 )16
