A binary number is a number written in base two, so the columns represent 1, 2, 4, 8, 16, 32 etc. So 101101 in binary is equivalent to (1 X 1) + (0 X 2) + (1 X 4) + (1 X 8) + (0 X 16) + (1 X 32) = 1 + 4 + 8 + 32 = 45.

The long answer

1 x 1 = 1
0 x 2 = 0
1 x 4 = 4
1 x 8 = 8
0 x 16 = 0
1 x 32 = 32

1 + 4 + 8 + 32 = 45

The short answer - select an internet based binary - decimal converter, type in a number in one format, out comes the answer in the other format
