# 74 in Binary

**74 in binary** is 1001010. 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 7 bits to represent 74 in binary. In this article, let us learn how to convert the decimal number 74 to binary.

## How to Convert 74 in Binary?

**Step 1:** Divide 74 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 |
---|---|

74/2 = 37 | 0 |

37/2 = 18 | 1 |

18/2 = 9 | 0 |

9/2 = 4 | 1 |

4/2 = 2 | 0 |

2/2 = 1 | 0 |

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 74.

Therefore, the binary equivalent of decimal number 74 is 1001010.

Let us have a look at the value of the decimal number 74 in the different number systems.

## FAQs on 74 in Binary

### What is 74 in Binary?

74 in binary is 1001010. To find decimal to binary equivalent, divide 74 successively by 2 until the quotient becomes 0. The binary equivalent can be obtained by writing the remainder in each division step from the bottom to the top.

### What is the Binary Equivalent of 74 + 66?

74 in binary number system is 1001010 and 66 is 1000010. We can add the binary equivalent of 74 and 66 using binary addition rules [0 + 0 = 0, 0 + 1 = 1, 1 + 1 = 10 note that 1 is a carry over to the next bit]. Therefore, (1001010)₂ + (1000010)₂ = (10001100)₂ which is nothing but 140.

### How to Convert 74 to Binary Equivalent?

We can divide 74 by 2 and continue the division till we get 0. Note down the remainder in each step.

- 74 mod 2 = 0 - LSB (Least Significant Bit)
- 37 mod 2 = 1
- 18 mod 2 = 0
- 9 mod 2 = 1
- 4 mod 2 = 0
- 2 mod 2 = 0
- 1 mod 2 = 1 - MSB (Most Significant Bit)

Write the remainders from MSB to LSB. Therefore, the decimal number 74 in binary can be represented as 1001010.

### Find the Value of 2 × 74 in Binary Form.

We know that 74 in binary is 1001010 and 2 is 10. Using the binary multiplication rules (0 × 0 = 0; 0 × 1 = 0 ; 1 × 0 = 0 and 1 × 1 = 1), we can multiply 1001010 × 10 = 10010100 which is 148 in the decimal number system. [74 × 2 = 148]

### How Many Bits Does 74 in Binary Have?

We can count the number of zeros and ones to see how many bits are used to represent 74 in binary i.e. 1001010. Therefore, we have used 7 bits to represent 74 in binary.
