Here I show you an easy one that will help you for a better understanding.
We have to convert 132 from decimal into binary – this means it will correspond a number formed only by 0 and 1.
In this method we use the division by 2 of the initial number to convert. We divide the initial number by 2 and we retain the reminder of this division , we continue to divide the quotient by 2 and we retain the new reminder and so on.
132 : 2 = 66 reminder 0 (1)
66: 2 = 33 reminder 0 (2)
33: 2= 16 reminder 1 (3)
16:2 =8 reminder 0 (4)
8: 2 = 4 reminder 0 (5)
4:2 =2 reminder 0 (6)...
