Binary 520 = 10000010002
The binary for 520 is 1000001000

As any other integer, 520 can be written as sum of potencies to the power of 2, known as binary code. Here’s the proof that 1000001000 is the binary of 520:

1×2^9 + 0x2^8 + 0x2^7 + 0x2^6 + 0x2^5 + 0x2^4 + 1×2^3 + 0x2^2 + 0x2^1 + 0x2^0 = 520

## Convert 520 to Binary

Now you already know the most important thing about 520 in binary form. 1000001000 is binary 520. That is if the binary in unsigned.

If 520 in binary is signed such as with two’s complement, then the binary code has a number of trailing zeroes, e.g. 0001000001000 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 520 signed is to accommodate for negative numbers, in which case the sign bit is 1 in our example.

Therefore, minus 520 signed using two’s complement, will start with one or more 1’s, but the exact code for -520 decimal to binary depends on the signed number representation system and number of bits available.
