Converting Binary to Decimal Number System.

Method or Steps for converting Binary to Decimal Number System.


While converting the binary number system to decimal number system we will
have to do the following steps in sequence.
Step 1: Multiply each bit by its base value (2) by placing the powers from
LSB to MSB
Step 2: Add the obtained result to get its decimal value.
Example:
1101(2) ?(10)
1 x 2
