If you want to know how to convert 18 to binary please read the instructions on the homepage.

Binary 18 = 100102
The binary for 18 is 10010

As any other integer, 18 can be written as sum of potencies to the power of 2, known as binary code. Here’s the proof that 10010 is the binary of 18:

1×2^4 + 0x2^3 + 0x2^2 + 1×2^1 + 0x2^0 = 18

## Convert 18 to Binary

Now you already know the most important thing about 18 in binary form. 10010 is binary 18. That is if the binary in unsigned.

If 18 in binary is signed such as with two’s complement, then the binary code has a number of trailing zeroes, e.g. 00010010 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 18 signed is to accommodate for negative numbers, in which case the sign bit is 1 in our example.

Therefore, minus 18 signed using two’s complement, will start with one or more 1’s, but the exact code for -18 decimal to binary depends on the signed number representation system and number of bits available.
