Who is asking: Teacher
Question:
a. 83 How do you solve this type of problem? Hi Larry
For the number 5036 in base 10 notation the digit 6 is in the units position, 3 is in the 10's position, 0 is in the 100's position and 5 is in the 1000's position. Thus, using the convention that 10
^{3} + 0x10^{2} + 3x10^{1} + 6x10^{0}
In base 2 notation we use powers of 2 rather than powers of 10, so for your problem 10100011
Thus
The pattern is the same in any base, so for example
