Binary 126 = 11111102
The binary for 126 is 1111110

As any other integer, 126 can be written as sum of potencies to the power of 2, known as binary code. Here’s the proof that 1111110 is the binary of 126:

1×2^6 + 1×2^5 + 1×2^4 + 1×2^3 + 1×2^2 + 1×2^1 + 0x2^0 = 126

## Convert 126 to Binary

Now you already know the most important thing about 126 in binary form. 1111110 is binary 126. That is if the binary in unsigned. If 126 in binary is signed such as with two’s complement, then the binary code has a number of trailing zeroes, e.g. 0001111110 in which the leftmost bit is the sign bit, followed perhaps by more trailing 0’s, and then by magnitude bits.

The reason to have the binary 126 signed is to accommodate for negative numbers, in which case the sign bit is 1 in our example. Therefore, minus 126 signed using two’s complement, will start with one or more 1’s, but the exact code for -126 decimal to binary depends on the signed number representation system and number of bits available.
