Binary 797 = 11000111012
The binary for 797 is 1100011101

As any other integer, 797 can be written as sum of potencies to the power of 2, known as binary code. Here’s the proof that 1100011101 is the binary of 797:

1×2^9 + 1×2^8 + 0x2^7 + 0x2^6 + 0x2^5 + 1×2^4 + 1×2^3 + 1×2^2 + 0x2^1 + 1×2^0 = 797

## Convert 797 to Binary

Now you already know the most important thing about 797 in binary form. 1100011101 is binary 797. That is if the binary in unsigned.

If 797 in binary is signed such as with two’s complement, then the binary code has a number of trailing zeroes, e.g. 0001100011101 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 797 signed is to accommodate for negative numbers, in which case the sign bit is 1 in our example.

Therefore, minus 797 signed using two’s complement, will start with one or more 1’s, but the exact code for -797 decimal to binary depends on the signed number representation system and number of bits available.
