Now you already know the most important thing about 20960 in binary form. 101000111100000 is binary 20960. That is if the binary in unsigned.

If 20960 in binary is signed such as with two’s complement, then the binary code has a number of trailing zeroes, e.g. 000101000111100000 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 20960 signed is to accommodate for negative numbers, in which case the sign bit is 1 in our example.

Therefore, minus 20960 signed using two’s complement, will start with one or more 1’s, but the exact code for -20960 decimal to binary depends on the signed number representation system and number of bits available.
