Binary is pretty easy to convert (compared to other bases!). Starting from the right you have a 1 or 0. Each digit to the left is a multiple of 2. So the left most is 1, second is 2, third is 4, fourth is 8, fifth is 16 and so on. If the binary number is HIGH (or a 1), you add that number to your count. Take the binary number 0101 for an example. The right most number is a HIGH and represents a 1. The next number to the left is LOW and represents a 2, but because it is LOW, you need not count it. The next number is HIGH and represents a 4. Because it is HIGH you add that to the initial 1 and you now have 5. Finally, the last number is LOW and represents an 8. Because it is LOW, you do not count it and the binary conversion is 5. Hope you find this helpful and goodluck!
