52010 = 10000010002
Decimal 520 = 1000001000 Binary


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

Here’s the proof that 1000001000 is the correct result:

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

Now you already know the most important thing:

100000100010 equals 5202 if 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 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 depends on the signed number representation system and number of bits available.

Here you can convert binary to decimal.
