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

Here’s the proof that 1111111 is the correct result:

1×2^6 + 1×2^5 + 1×2^4 + 1×2^3 + 1×2^2 + 1×2^1 + 1×2^0 = 127

Now you already know the most important thing:

111111110 equals 1272 if unsigned.

If 127 in binary is signed such as with two’s complement, then the binary code has a number of trailing zeroes, e.g. 0001111111 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 127 signed using two’s complement, will start with one or more 1’s, but the exact code for -127 decimal depends on the signed number representation system and number of bits available.

Here you can convert binary to decimal.
