# C++ Program to Convert Decimal to Binary

Here the program converts the decimal number entered by the user to its corresponding binary number.

## Decimal number

In algebra, a decimal number can be defined as a number whose whole number part and the fractional part are separated by a decimal point.

## Binary number

A number system where a number is represented by using only two digits (0 and 1) with a base of 2 is called a binary number system. For example, 10012 is a binary number.

## How to convert a decimal number into a binary number?

To convert a decimal number into its equivalent binary number, we divide the decimal number by 2 each time, till we get 0 as a dividend. Let us take an example to convert 1310 into a binary number.
13 ÷ 2: 6 and remainder 1
6 ÷ 2: 3 and remainder 0
3 ÷ 2: 1 and remainder 1
1 ÷ 2: 0 and remainder 1
Now we take the bits from the last remainder to the first remainder, i.e.(MSB to LSB). Hence,
1310 = 11012.

## C++ program to convert a decimal number into a binary number

The user is asked to enter the decimal number. The program has to convert it into its equivalent binary value. Here we are using three variables decimalnum, binarynum[20], and i. initially the value of i is set to 0. When the user enters the decimal number, it gets stored in decimalnum. Now a` while loop` is evaluated with the condition decimalnum!=0.

``````
while(decimalnum!=0)

{

binarynum[i] = decimalnum%2;

i++;

decimalnum = decimalnum/2;

```
```

}
Here, if the condition evaluates to be true, the program flow goes inside the loop and decimalnum%2 gets initialized to binarynum[i]. The value ofgets incremented.
decimalnum/2 is initialized to decimalnum. Now decimalnum = decimalnum/2;
The control flow goes back and evaluates the `while loop` again and the process repeats until the condition of the `while loop` evaluates to be false. After ending the` while loop` a` for loop `is used

``````
for(i=(i-1); i>=0; i--)

cout<
``````

`The value of binary num[]gets printed from its 0th index.`

### `Algorithm`

`Step 1: Call the header file iostream.`

`Step 2: Use the namespace std.`

`Step 3: Open the integer type main function; int main().`

`Step 4: Declare two integer type variables decimalnum, binarynum[20], i=0;`

`Step 5: Ask the user to enter a number;`

`Step 6: Get the number into the variable decimalnum;`

`Step 7: Evaluate a while loop with condition decimalnum!=0; `

`Step 8: If true then compute decimalnum%2 and store the value to binarynum[i];`

`Step 9: increment the value of i;`

`Step 10: Update the variable decimalnum by decimalnum/2;`

`Step 11: Continue step 7 to step 10 until the condition goes wrong;`

`Step 12: Print the binarynum[] by using a for loop;`

`Step 13:Exit;`

## C++ Source Code

```                                          ```#include<iostream>
using namespace std;
int main()
{
int decimalnum, binarynum[20], i=0;
cout<<"Enter the decimal Number: ";
cin>>decimalnum;
while(decimalnum!=0)
{
binarynum[i] = decimalnum%2;
i++;
decimalnum = decimalnum/2;
}
cout<<"\nEquivalent Binary Value: ";
for(i=(i-1); i>=0; i--)
cout<<binarynum[i];
cout<<endl;
return 0;
}```
```

## OUTPUT

```Enter the decimal Number: 125
Equivalent Binary Value: 1111101
