Hey I ain't a computer geek but still...
Now suppose the number you wanna convert is like 1011.
1. Move from right to left.
2. The rightmost bit is '1'. So you do 1 x (2 raised to zero (zeroth bit)) =1
3. The next bit is '1'. So you do (previous answer) + 1 x (2 raised to one (first bit)) = 1+2=3
4. The next bit is '0'. So you do (previous answer) + 0 x (2 raised to two (second bit)) = 3+0=3
5. The next bit is '1'. So you do (previous answer) + 1 x (2 raised to three (third bit)) = 3+8=11
So the number 1011 in decimal is 11...
You should ask such questions in Yahoo answers. This a place to 'discuss' things buddy...
Take care...

Hi there. Sorry if I am too late. I also have trouble to comprehend how to convert binary to decimal and vice versa as they did not teach us well here. Fortunately I found a really useful video on Youtube which shows how to do so. The video shows a fast process to do the conversions and it does work. I tried to use the process mentionned in the video and recreate them on the calculate and it showed the same results. Anyway enough talking, here the video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hlV7dMinHFc . Hope that it helps.
