Numbering Systems
• Decimal (Denary) base 10.
• Clumsy when dealing with computers.
• Other systems
• Binary
• Octal
• Convenient when dealing with computers
Decimal
• Familiar system.
• Can use are fingers to help.
• Count 0 – 9 in any column, gives 10 separate values.
• When a count exceeds 9 we start a new column.
• Example:
• 9 + 1 = 10
• 99 + 1 =100
• Mathematically each column represents a power of ten (Base 10).
Decimal
• 45610= 4 x102 + 5 x101 + 6 x 100
• We call:
• 100 Units
• 101 Tens
• 102 Hundreds (x 10)
• ………. And so on.
Binary
• Computers don’t have ten fingers.
• They work in bits
• A bit can only have 2 values
• 0 and 1
• So when we exceed 1 we must start a new column as we did in decimal.
Binary
• Examples :
• 12 + 12 = 102
• 02 + 12 = 12
• 101112 + 112 = 110102
• Binary works in powers of 2. (x 2)
• Columns are 128 64 32 16 8 4 2 1
• 1012 = 1 x 22 + 0 x 21 + 1 x 20
• 22 = 410
• 21 = 210
• 20 = 110
• Binary number 1012 is therefore 510 in decimal.
Octal
• For large numbers Binary is cumbersome to humans.
• Is there a compromise?
• It groups 3 binary columns together.
• One is octal.
• Octal has 8 values 0 – 7.
Octal
• When we reach 7 we start a new column.
• Examples :
• 178 + 18 = 208
• 7778 + 18 = 10008
• Octal works in powers of 8. (x 8)
• Columns are … 512 64 8 1
• 1118 = 1 x 82 + 1 x 81 + 1 x 80
• 82 = 64
• 81 = 8
• 80 = 1
• Octal number 1118 is therefore 7310 in decimal.
• For large numbers Binary is cumbersome to humans.
• Is there a better compromise?
• It groups 4 binary columns together.
• Hexadecimal has 16 values 0 – F. (0 –15 in decimal)
• We need to add 6 more symbols to represent the 2 column numbers 10 –15. We use A – F.
• When we reach F we start a new column.
• Examples :
• 1F16 + 116 = 2016
• FFF16 + 116 = 100016
• Hexadecimal works in powers of 16. (x 16)
• Columns are … 4096 256 16 1
• 111 = 1 x 162 + 1 x 161 + 1 x 160
• 162 = 256
• 161 = 16
• 160 = 1
• Hexadecimal number 11116 is therefore 27310 in decimal.
• Consider the 4 bit (column) binary number
• 11112 = 1510 = F16
• That is, the largest number that can be represented by 4 bits in binary can be represented by a single value F16.
• All the values in between are then 0 – F.
• Octal does the same for 3 bit binary.
• We can divide long binary numbers into groups of 4 and convert them directly in binary.
• Example the 16 bit number:
• 0010 1111 0001 0100 2 is 2F1416.
• Computers deal in multiples of 8 (and hence 4 bits).
Convertions
• Binary, octal, Hex(adecimal) to decimal:
• Add up powers as we did earlier.
• Examples

1118 = 1 x 82 + 1 x 81 + 1 x 80

= 6410 + 810 + 110 = 73.

11116 = 1 x 162 + 1 x 161 + 1 x 160

= 25610 + 1610 + 110

Convertions
• Decimal to binary.
• Find the largest power of 2 (column in binary number) that is less than or equal to the number we want to convert.
• Mark a one in that column.
• Subtract the power of 2 from the number we want to convert.
• Repeat the above on the remainder.
• Repeat until there is no remainder.
• Fill missing columns with zeros.
Convertions
• Decimal to binary.
• Example
• Convert 67 to binary:

128 64 32 16 8 4 2 1

1

64 is largest column less than or equal to 67 leaving remainder 67 – 64 = 3

128 64 32 16 8 4 2 1

1 1

2 is largest column less than or equal to the remainder 3 .

Leaving 1. 1 is largest column less than or equal to remainder 1. Leaving no remainder.

128 64 32 16 8 4 2 1

1 1 1

Fill with zeros.

So 6710 is0100 00112

Convertions
• Find the binary number and separate into groups of four. Express each group of 4 in hexadecimal.
• Example 6710 is 0100 00112 is 4316.
• Find the largest multiple of each power of 16, less than or equal than your number.
• Mark the multiple in that column
• Repeat for the remainders as before..
Convertions
• Example

4096 256 16 1

4

4 x 16 = 64 is largest multiple less or equal to 67. Remainder 67 – 64 = 3

4096 256 16 1

4 3

3 x 1 is largest multiple less than or equal to the remainder 3.

Leaving no remainder.

Fill with zeros. (not necessary here)

So 6710 is 4316

Convertions
• Take each hex symbol in turn.
• Convert (or look up) to decimal.
• Convert decimal number to binary.
• Replace hex symbol with 4 bit binary number.
• Sounds tedious, but only 6 different from decimal so becomes easy.
Convertions
• Example:
• Convert 2F to binary.
• Take the 2.
• 2 is 2 in decimal.
• Convert to binary or look up
• Gives 0010
• Take the F
• F is 15 in decimal
• Convert to binary or look up
• Gives 1111
• So 2F in binary is 0010 1111
