 Renjith said: (Jul 12, 2012) 20 to base 8 means 16 to base 10 i.e. 2 0 2 x 8 raise to 1 + 0 x 8 raise to 0 = 16. Now 16 base to 10 means 10000 base to 2 i.e. 16/2 = 8 remainder 0 8/2 = 4 remainder 0 4/2 = 2 remainder 0 2/2 = 1 remainder 0 So the answer is 1 0 0 0 0 (the last answer and the remainders, from bottom to top) Hope it is clear.!!

 Ravi said: (Dec 15, 2014) Binary for 0 is 000. Binary for 2 is 010. So, binary for 20 is 010000. Basically we not consider the left zero for 1.
