The number of digits in the system determines the base of any number system, such as decimal and binary. Basically binary is a base 2 number system as it uses two basic digits. Thus it means that the whole Binary number system depends on the two basic digits. Whereas Decimal is a base10 system since it uses ten digits and these are 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8 and 9.
Decimal Number System
A system with base  10 is a decimal number system. Thus it means that there are ten basic digits on which the decimal number system depends. The digits are 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8 and 9. By using these ten digits all the numbers in decimal number system are written. Thus the place value of a digit in a number increases the power from right to left.
The following are the place value of each digit of number 5471 :
Binary Number System
A number system with a base2 is known as binary number system. The whole binary number system depends on two digits these are 0 and 1, respectively. By using these two digits the number in binary number system are written. Thus the place value of a digit in a number increases in the power of 2 from right to left.

Binary digit = 100111000
Hexadecimal Number System
The hexadecimal number system is based on 16. Therefore, it means, there are 16 basics digits on which whole hexadecimal number system depends. The digits are 0,1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10,11,12, 13,14 and 15, where as the numbers 10,11,12, 13, 14, and 15 are also represented as A, B, C, D, E and F. By using these 16 digits all the numbers in Hexadecimal number system are written. Thus the place value in hexadecimal system is increased in the power of 16 from right to left.
The following example shows the place value of each digit in the number 121 FA:
One's Complement
One's component is a system that is used to represent negative numbers. To take 1s complement of binary digit, replace all 1s with 0s and all 0s with 1s.
1 s complement of 110001 is 001110.
Steve wants to convert 10111 to decimal number. Which one of the following is the correct conversion?
(A) 48
(B) 23
(C) 29
(D) 3000
(E) None of these
Answer: (B)
Explanation
Correct Option:
(B) The place value of 1 is : \[1*{{2}^{0}}=1\]
The place value of 0 is : \[1*{{2}^{1}}=2\]
The place value of 1 is : \[1*{{2}^{2}}=4\]
The place value of 0 is : \[0*{{2}^{3}}=0\]
The place value of 1 is : \[1*{{2}^{4}}=16\]
The decimal number =\[1+2+4+0+16=23\]
Incorrect Options:
Rest of the options is incorrect.
