# 249 in Binary

**249 in binary** is 11111001. Unlike the decimal number system where we use the digits 0 to 9 to represent a number, in a binary system, we use only 2 digits that are 0 and 1 (bits). We have used 8 bits to represent 249 in binary. In this article, let us learn how to convert the decimal number 249 to binary.

## How to Convert 249 in Binary?

**Step 1:** Divide 249 by 2. Use the integer quotient obtained in this step as the dividend for the next step. Repeat the process until the quotient becomes 0.

Dividend | Remainder |
---|---|

249/2 = 124 | 1 |

124/2 = 62 | 0 |

62/2 = 31 | 0 |

31/2 = 15 | 1 |

15/2 = 7 | 1 |

7/2 = 3 | 1 |

3/2 = 1 | 1 |

1/2 = 0 | 1 |

**Step 2:** Write the remainder from bottom to top i.e. in the reverse chronological order. This will give the binary equivalent of 249.

Therefore, the binary equivalent of decimal number 249 is 11111001.

### How to Convert 249 to Binary Equivalent?

We can divide 249 by 2 and continue the division till we get 0. Note down the remainder in each step.

- 249 mod 2 = 1 - LSB (Least Significant Bit)
- 124 mod 2 = 0
- 62 mod 2 = 0
- 31 mod 2 = 1
- 15 mod 2 = 1
- 7 mod 2 = 1
- 3 mod 2 = 1
- 1 mod 2 = 1 - MSB (Most Significant Bit)

Write the remainders from MSB to LSB. Therefore, the decimal number 249 in binary can be represented as 11111001.

### Find the Value of 9 × 249 in Binary Form.

We know that 249 in binary is 11111001 and 9 is 1001. Using the binary multiplication rules (0 × 0 = 0; 0 × 1 = 0 ; 1 × 0 = 0 and 1 × 1 = 1), we can multiply 11111001 × 1001 = 100011000001 which is 2241 in the decimal number system. [249 × 9 = 2241]
