Decimal to binary, octal to decimal
Hello to all!
I am new on this forum, and I am quite new to Java too. I am from Slovenia, and I don't speak English very well, so please excuse me for mistakes.
Ok, for homework I have to write a program, which convert from decimal to binary and than another program, which convert from octal to decimal.
In the program which convert from decimal to binary, I have to use while loop, and this is a problem. I know how to do it with toBinaryString(), but I don't have idea, how to do it with While loop.
So, write this program, to convert from decimal to binary. The Binary number is save in variable a, but I have no Idea how to revese it. Now, the (Decimal) 55 = (Binary)111011, but it is wrong, it have to be 110111. How can I reverse this number?
Java Code:import java.util.*; public class Convert { public static void main(String[] args) { Scanner in = new Scanner(System.in); System.out.println("Input decimal number: "); int dec = in.nextInt(); int udec = dec; int ost; String a = new String(); while (udec >= 1) { ost = udec % 2; a = ost + ""; udec /=2; System.out.print(a); } } }
Thanks to all!

Octal to decimal conversion is easy. Please have a look here: Octal  Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Also, Integer has a method, toOctalString and parse that will help. Your best way to learn these methods is to play with them with different numbers and Strings and see what happens.

decimal to binary
Java Code:import java.util.Scanner; public class decToBinary { public static void main(String[] args ){ StringBuilder str = new StringBuilder(); System.out.printf("Enter a decimal number: "); int number=0; Scanner input = new Scanner ( System.in ); number = input.nextInt(); while( number > 1){ number = number / 2; str.append ( (number % 2 == 0) ? 0 : 1 ); } str.insert(0,0); System.out.println("str: " + str.reverse().toString() ); } }
Java Code:import java.util.Scanner; public class octToDecimal { public static void main(String[] args ){ System.out.printf("Enter an octal number: "); String number; Scanner input = new Scanner ( System.in ); number = input.nextLine(); // store values from 1, 8, 64 .... // if number input is 100 for example, then octals array will contain 1,8,64 int[] octals = new int[number.length() ]; octals[0]=1; for (int i = 1;i< number.length() ;i++){ octals[i] = octals[i1] * 8; } int j = 0; int sum=0; // add up each position for (int i = number.length()1 ; i>=0 ;i){ // starting from end of the string char c = number.charAt(i) ; // accumulate the sum sum += Character.digit(c,10) * octals[j] ; j++; } System.out.println("Decimal value for "+ number + " is: " + sum ); } }
