no to convert back to decimal from binary just go, for example:

binary: 110101

decimal: (2^5) + (2^4) + (2^2) + (2^0) = 32 + 16 + 4 + 1 = 53

Ohh, I just realized I never understood the question, hehe.

Yeah, binary is base two, instead of base ten for decimals.

Decimal: 100 + 10 + 1 (notice that they are all powers of 10, from 10^0 to 10^2)

Binary: 4 + 2 + 1 (they are all powers of 2)

But I'm sure you already know this, and I'm just spamming this thread. :P
