In this minilesson, we will learn about writing 32 in binary system along with examples.
In our daily life, we represent numbers using the digits 0, 1, 2, ..., 9. This system where we use the digits 0, 1, 2, ..., 9 to write numbers is called the "decimal system."
Then what is a binary system? Well, it is a system in which data that is inputted into a computer is converted into 0s and 1s, irrespective of the type of data. In other words, pictures, videos, movies, and cartoons in the eyes of a computer are just 0s and 1s.
Here are some interesting features about the binary system:
 Thus the numbers in this system have a base 2
 0 and 1 are called bits.
 8 bits together make a byte.
 The data in computers is stored in terms of bits and bytes.
Lesson Plan
What is 32 as a Binary Number?
Here, 32 has no base. So by default, its base is 10
We have to convert it into binary system. i.e., we have to convert 32 into a number that is made up of the digits 0 and 1
32 in binary system is:
32 (or) \(32_{10} = 100000_2\) 
But how to express 32 in binary? Let's learn.

To convert a number from binary system to decimal system:
Multiply each digit of the given number, starting from the rightmost digit, with the exponents of 2, where the exponents start from \(0\) and increase by \(1\) every time. Then just add the above products.

To convert a number from the decimal system to the binary system:
Divide the given number by 2 and note down the quotient and the remainder in the “quotientremainder” form repetitively until we get the quotient to be less than the base. The given number in the decimal number system is obtained just by reading all the remainders and the last quotient from bottom to top.
How to convert 32 in binary form?
To convert 32 into binary, we have to divide 32 by 2 and note down the quotient and the remainder in the “quotientremainder” form.
Repeat this process (dividing the quotient again by 2) until we get the quotient to be less than the base.
32 in binary system is obtained by just by reading all the remainders and the last quotient from bottom to top.
Thus 32 in binary is:
32 (or) \(32_{10} = 100000_2\) 
Solved Examples
Example 1 
Sophia understood that 32 in binary form is 100000_{2}. But she would like to crosscheck her answer. How can she do that?
Solution
Sophia tried to convert 100000_{2} into the decimal system.
She recalled the fact that to convert a number from binary system to decimal system we have to:
multiply each digit of the given number, starting from the rightmost digit, with the exponents of 2, where the exponents start from \(0\) and increase by \(1\) every time. Then we just add the above products.
Wow! 32 is back!
This way, Sophia can verify her answer. 
Example 2 
Can we help Jake convert 171 (or) \(171_{10}\) into the binary system?
Solution
We do it just by using the same procedure of converting 32 in binary form.
\(\therefore\) \(171_{10}=10101011_2\)
