## INFORMATION

A decimal number can be converted to BCD by writing the 4-bit binary equivalents of all digits in the decimal, in the same order.

For example (273)10 has 3 digits. If we write these digits as 4-bit binary numbers we obtain

• (2)10 = (0010)2,
• (7)10 = (0111)2 and
• (3)10 = (0011)2

Writing those binary numbers with the same order as decimal, gives us the BCD equivalent.

(273)10 = (0010 0111 0011)BCD
