 # How To Convert Decimal To Binary In Python 34 / 62 Blog from Python Fundamentals

Python is a highly versatile and capable programming language. Among the many things one can do, converting from decimal to binary and vice versa is one that stands out the most. Thus in this article, we will speak more about how to convert decimal to binary in Python and vice versa.

Let’s begin!

To understand what this operation means, check out the example below.

From decimal to binary

Input : 8

Output : 1 0 0 0

From binary to decimal

Input : 100

Output : 4

Let us see how to convert Decimal to Binary in Python,

## Converting Decimal To Binary In Python

In order to convert decimal to binary, take a look at the example below.

Keep calling conversion function with n/2  till n > 1,

later perform n % 1 to get MSB of converted binary number.

Example: 7

1). 7/2 = Quotient = 3(grater than 1), Remainder = 1.

2). 3/2 = Quotient = 1(not grater than 1), Remainder = 1.

3). 1%2 = Remainder = 1.

Let us see a sample program,

## Sample Program

```# Function to print binary number for the
# input decimal using recursion
def decimalToBinary(n):
if(n > 1):
# divide with integral result
decimalToBinary(n//2)
print(n%2, end=' ')
# Driver code
if __name__ == '__main__':
decimalToBinary(8)
print("n")
decimalToBinary(18)
print("n")
decimalToBinary(7)
print("n")&nbsp;```

The output of the above program will look something like this.

1000

10010

111

We can convert Decimal To Binary in Python using bin function as well, let us see how,

Making Use Of Bin Function

```#Function to convert Decimal number
# to Binary number
def decimalToBinary(n):
return bin(n).replace("0b","")
# Driver code
if __name__ == '__main__':
print(decimalToBinary(8))
print(decimalToBinary(18))
print(decimalToBinary(7))```

The output of the above program will look something like this

1000

10010

111

Now that you know how to convert from decimal to binary in Python, let’s see how to do the reverse that is binary to decimal.

## Binary To Decimal In Python

To understand this better, refer to the example below.

Example: 1011

1). Take modulo of given binary number with 10.

(1011 % 10 = 1)

2). Multiply rem with 2 raised to the power

it’s position from right end.

(1 * 2^0)

Note that we start counting position with 0.

3). Add result with previously generated result.

decimal = decimal + (1 * 2^0)

4). Update binary number by dividing it by 10.

(1011 / 10 = 101)

5). Keep repeating upper steps till binary > 0.

Final Conversion -: (1 * 2^3) + (0 * 2^2) +

(1 * 2^1) + (1 * 2^0) = 11

Let us take a look at a sample program,

#### Sample Program

When the above program is executed, the output will look like this.

Let us move to the last bit of this Decimal to Binary in Python article.

#### Sample Program

```# Function to convert Binary number
# to Decimal number
def binaryToDecimal(n):
return int(n,2)
# Driver code
if __name__ == '__main__':
print(binaryToDecimal('100'))
print(binaryToDecimal('101'))
print(binaryToDecimal('1001'))```

The output of the above program will be
