Base eight is not binary binary is base 2 think of an odometer where when each number gets to 7 it goes back to 0 and the next one goes up one. There are settings on a windows calculator to convert from decimal to octidecimal, hexidecimal etc

Decimal is base 10 and binary is base 2.

The columns from right to left in base 10 are:

10^10 10^9 10^8 10^7 10^6 10^5 10^4 10^3 10^2 10^1 10^0

Similarly, the columns from right to left in base 2 are:

2^10 2^9 2^8 2^7 2^6 2^5 2^4 2^3 2^2 2^1 2^0

This site does a good job of explaining the conversion from decimal to binary.

http://www.math.grin.edu/~rebelsky/Courses/152/97F/Readings/student-binary

For example, take the number 157. The biggest column that goes into 157 is 128, which is the 2^7th column, so we put 1 in that column. Subtracting 128 from157, we get 29. We start all over again. The biggest binary number going into 29 is 16, which is the 2^4th column. When you subtract 16 from 29, you get 13. We start all over again. The biggest binary number going into 13 is 8. Subtracting 8 from 13, we get 5. Biggest number going in is 4, 2^2th column. 1 left over to go into the 2^0 column.

Pulling it all together, we get:

10011101.

Checking, 128 + 16 + 8 + 4 + 1 = 157.

Good luck.

Let me know if you have any questions.

The Fisher & Paykel Smart Drive and EcoSmart electronic washing machines are equipped with fault detecting software to help easily determine the cause whenever a problem occurs. Not like other electronic washing machines, these ones do not have displays to flash the code, but rather use the eight (8) light-emitting diodes (LED) of the Wash Progress indicators to indicate the fault code. The eight (8) LEDs stands as an 8-bit binary number (zeroes and ones) that must be decoded and then converted to the decimal number system to get the fault code.

The fault code can be decoded by determining which Wash Progress LEDs are lit. Once determined which of the LEDs are lit, write down the 8-bit binary code; 1 for lit LEDs and 0 for the off ones. For example; the final wash, rinse, and spin LEDs are lit; the binary code is 00001101. This in turn can be converted to the decimal number system by multiplying each digit with its corresponding place value then adding up the result. From left to right, the place values are 128, 64, 32, 16, 8, 4 , 2, and 1 respectively. Therefore, the decimal equivalent of 00001101 is 128(0) + 64(0) + 32(0) + 16(0) + 8(1) + 4(1) + 2(0) + 1(1) = 8 + 4 + 1 = 13; the fault code is 13.

It sounds like you have binary dip switches on the unit. If so, switches 1, 2, 3 and 6 should be on and the others should be off. on is up, off is down. Binary switches are as follows- 1=1, 2=2, 3=4. 4=8. 5=16. 6=32, 7=64 etc.

Where to start. Most things we do in math are in base 10, probably because we have 10 fingers. Instead of base 10, binary is base 2. In computers, binary rules because a bit can be set to ON or OFF, 1 being ON, and 0 being OFF.

So the next thing is counting. 0 1 10 11 100 101 110 111 1000 1001

Decimal equivalent 0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9

How to convert from binary to decimal? Line up the columns and multiply down. For example, 1101. The columns, starting from the right are 2^0, 2^1, 2^2, 2^3, reading ^ as exponent.

See if I can line these up. 1 1 0 1

2^3 2^2 2^1 2^0

8 4 2 1

multiplying down 8 4 0 1

Next step is to add them up. 8+4+1 = 13!

Going the other way, we have to divide by the largest 2^x number, so what is left over and continue dividing until nothing is left.

For example, 56. 2^5 (32) is the largest 2^x number that goes into 56, so we put a 1 in this column. Our remainder is 24. 2^4 (16) goes into this once, so we put a 1 in this column. Our remainder is 8. 2^3(8) goes into this once, so we put a 1 in this column. Now the remainder is 0 so we put a 0 in the 2^2 (4) column, 2^1(2) column, and 2^0 (1) column.

We end up with 111000.

Let me know if you have any questions.

Good luck.

Hi John, a computer work with a binary system, bits and bytes. With electricity, it can only be on or off, charged or discharged.

All maths functions that is used in software have to be converted to the base binary system for the processor to do calculations. Does this answer your question?

If not, please elaborate on your question.

The **octal** numeral system, or **oct** for short, is the base-8 number system, and uses the digits 0 to 7. Octal numerals can be made from binary numerals by grouping consecutive binary digits into groups of three (starting from the right). For example, the binary representation for decimal 74 is 1001010, which can be grouped into (00)1 001 010 - so the octal representation is 112.

In the decimal system each decimal place is a power of ten. For example:

In the octal system each place is a power of eight. For example:

By performing the calculation above in the familiar decimal system we see why 112 in octal is equal to 64+8+2 = 74 in decimal.

Hope this helps

What make and model calculator?

If you want to do it by hand, each hexadecimal digit is four binary digits:

0 = 0000

1 = 0001

2 = 0010

3 = 0011

4 = 0100

5 = 0101

6 = 0110

7 = 0111

8 = 1000

9 = 1001

A = 1010

B = 1011

C = 1100

D = 1101

E = 1110

F = 1111

Dinary? Never heard that one before. What is a dinary number? Anyway your calculator cannot perform the operations. The Casios can work in Binary (base 2), Octal (base 8), Decimal (base 10) and Hexadecimal (base 16). Some Sharps can do calculations in base 5 (pental).

Letters can be converted into decimal number using ASCII table. Every Character has it own equivalent number. Once converted into decimal (base 10), I could be easily converted into binary (base 2)

You could also use applications or web based applications such as ASCII to binary converter to help you convert it.

1 digit is one bit, either 1 or zero in binary, so 8 bits shows 8 digits (10001011)
