Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Not sure what you mean. The base in binary is 2. The decimal system is based on base 10. What you drew there looks like it can mean 10 in base 12, which would be equal to 12 in decimal base. So for base 10, you have digits 0,1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9 each digit place is base^place but starting from place = zero so 10^n.... 10^2...10^1...10^0 923 in base 10 is 9 digit * 10^2 + 2 digit * 10^1 + 3 digit * 10^0 xyz in base b is x digit * b^2 + y digit * b^1 + z digit * b^0 so 10 in base 12 = 1 * 12^1 + 0 * 12^0 = 12 in base 10dw:1442386650304:dw 10 in base 2 = 1 * 2^1 + 0 * 2^0 = 2 in base 10
