29.8 29(10)=(11101)2 now .8 comes for this we will multiply 2 with .8 =1.6 left 1 is carry and .6 is again multiplied with too result is 1.2 now 1 left sided 1 is taken as carry now we take .2 and multiply it with 2 and now result is 0.4 we take left 0 as carry.... the carries are 1100 upto 4 digits. hence we will write frist 11101 than .8`s carry in 1st come order we get (11101.1100)2=(29.8)10 =29.8
