# C Program to Convert Decimal Numbers to Binary Numbers

• Write a C program to convert a decimal number to binary number
• Write a C program to convert a binary number(base 2) to decimal number(base 10)

Decimal number system is a base 10 number system using digits for 0 to 9 whereas binary number system is base 2 and uses 0 and 1. Given a decimal number as input from user we have to print the binary equivalent of input number.

##### For Example
100 in Decimal is equivalent to 1100100 in Binary number system.

Algorithm to convert Decimal to Binary number
• Divide the input decimal number by 2 and store the remainder.
• Store the quotient back to the input number variable.
• Repeat this process till quotient becomes zero.
• Equivalent binary number will be the remainders in above process in reverse order.
##### For Example

Suppose input decimal number is 13
Step 1. 13/2 , Remainder = 1, Quotient = 6
Step 2. 6/2 , Remainder = 0, Quotient = 3
Step 3. 3/2 , Remainder = 1, Quotient = 1
Step 4. 1/2 , Remainder = 1, Quotient = 0
Now, the Binary equivalent of 13 is the remainders in reverse order : 1101

## C program to convert decimal number to binary

```/*
* C program to convert decimal numbers to binary numbers
*/

#include <stdio.h>
#include <conio.h>

long decimalToBinary(long n);
int main() {
long decimal;
printf("Enter a decimal number\n");
scanf("%ld", &decimal);
printf("Binary number of %ld is %ld", decimal, decimalToBinary(decimal));

getch();
return 0;
}

/* Function to convert a decinal number to binary number */
long decimalToBinary(long n) {
int remainder;
long binary = 0, i = 1;

while(n != 0) {
remainder = n%2;
n = n/2;
binary= binary + (remainder*i);
i = i*10;
}
return binary;
}
```
Program Output
```Enter a decimal number
25
Binary number of 25 is 11001
```
```Enter a decimal number
64
Binary number of 64 is 1000000
```

## C program to convert binary number to decimal

```/*

#include

long binaryToDecimal(long n);
int main() {
long binary;
printf("Enter a binary number\n");
scanf("%ld", &binary);
printf("Decimal number of %ld is %ld", binary, binaryToDecimal(binary));

getch();
return 0;
}

/* Function to convert a binary number to decimal number */
long binaryToDecimal(long n) {
int remainder;
long decimal = 0, i=0;
while(n != 0) {
remainder = n%10;
n = n/10;
decimal = decimal + (remainder*pow(2,i));
++i;
}
return decimal;
}
```
Program Output
```Enter a binary number
11001
Decimal number of 11001 is 25
```
