The binary for 217 is 11011001

As any other integer, 217 can be written as sum of potencies to the power of 2, known as binary code. Here’s the proof that 11011001 is the binary of 217:

1×2^7 + 1×2^6 + 0x2^5 + 1×2^4 + 1×2^3 + 0x2^2 + 0x2^1 + 1×2^0 = 217

## Convert 217 to Binary

Now you already know the most important thing about 217 in binary form. 11011001 is binary 217. That is if the binary in unsigned.

If 217 in binary is signed such as with two’s complement, then the binary code has a number of trailing zeroes, e.g. 00011011001 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 217 signed is to accommodate for negative numbers, in which case the sign bit is 1 in our example.

Therefore, minus 217 signed using two’s complement, will start with one or more 1’s, but the exact code for -217 decimal to binary depends on the signed number representation system and number of bits available.
