104610 = 100000101102
Decimal 1046 = 10000010110 Binary


Any integer can be written as sum of potencies to the power of 2, known as binary code.

Here’s the proof that 10000010110 is the correct result:

1×2^10 + 0x2^9 + 0x2^8 + 0x2^7 + 0x2^6 + 0x2^5 + 1×2^4 + 0x2^3 + 1×2^2 + 1×2^1 + 0x2^0 = 1046

Now you already know the most important thing:

1000001011010 equals 10462 if unsigned.

If 1046 in binary is signed such as with two’s complement, then the binary code has a number of trailing zeroes, e.g. 00010000010110 in which the leftmost bit is the sign bit, followed perhaps by more trailing 0’s, and then by magnitude bits.

The reason to have the binary signed is to accommodate for negative numbers, in which case the sign bit is 1 in our example.

Therefore, minus 1046 signed using two’s complement, will start with one or more 1’s, but the exact code for -1046 decimal depends on the signed number representation system and number of bits available.

Here you can convert binary to decimal.
