can anybody suggest me the way which i am following to convert the numbers to binary format is right.

i am using the following method.

eg take 8 as the number which should be converted to binary format.

i am dividing it by 2 keeping the reminder right to left.again i am dividing the multiple by 2 until the multiple is 1, and keep the 1 at left side.

8 in binary format is 1000.

binary to number

In binary, each position is 2 times bigger than the position to its right:

128 - 64 - 32 - 16 - 8 - 4 - 2 - 1

1000 = 8*1+4*0+2*0+1*0=8.
