Binary 796 = 11000111002
The binary for 796 is 1100011100

As any other integer, 796 can be written as sum of potencies to the power of 2, known as binary code. Here’s the proof that 1100011100 is the binary of 796:

1×2^9 + 1×2^8 + 0x2^7 + 0x2^6 + 0x2^5 + 1×2^4 + 1×2^3 + 1×2^2 + 0x2^1 + 0x2^0 = 796

## Convert 796 to Binary

Now you already know the most important thing about 796 in binary form. 1100011100 is binary 796. That is if the binary in unsigned.

If 796 in binary is signed such as with two’s complement, then the binary code has a number of trailing zeroes, e.g. 0001100011100 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 796 signed is to accommodate for negative numbers, in which case the sign bit is 1 in our example.

Therefore, minus 796 signed using two’s complement, will start with one or more 1’s, but the exact code for -796 decimal to binary depends on the signed number representation system and number of bits available.
