2.2.4 CONVERSIONS AMONG RADICES
In the previous section, we saw an example of how a base 2 number can be converted into a base 10 number. A conversion in the reverse direction is more involved. The easiest way to convert ﬁxed point numbers containing both integer and fractional parts is to convert each part separately. Consider converting (23.375)10 to base 2. We begin by separating the number into its integer and fractional parts:
(23.375)10 = (23)10 + (.375)10.
Converting the Integer Part of a Fixed Point Number—The Remainder Method
As suggested in the previous section, the general polynomial form for representing a binary integer is: ...
