## Convert 12956 to Binary

Now you already know the most important thing about 12956 in binary form. 11001010011100 is binary 12956. That is if the binary in unsigned. If 12956 in binary is signed such as with two’s complement, then the binary code has a number of trailing zeroes, e.g. 00011001010011100 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 12956 signed is to accommodate for negative numbers, in which case the sign bit is 1 in our example. Therefore, minus 12956 signed using two’s complement, will start with one or more 1’s, but the exact code for -12956 decimal to binary depends on the signed number representation system and number of bits available.
