2 Decimal System (Base Ten) 1,367 is represented as 1 x 1,000 = 1,000 3 x 100 = 300 6 x 10 = 60 7 x 1 = 7 1,000 + 300 + 60 + 7 = 1,367
3 Binary System (Base Two) Converting from binary to decimal 1011 0011 is represented as 1 x 128 = 128 0 x 64 = 0 1 x 32 = 32 1 x 16 = 16 0 x 8 = 0 0 x 4 = 0 1 x 2 = 2 1 x 1 = 1 128 + 32 + 16 + 2 + 1 = 179 in decimal form
