# dec_to_bin

Version:

Converts a decimal number to a binary number represented by a string.

## Syntax

c = dec_to_bin(a)
c = dec_to_bin(a, b)
Legacy name: dec2bin

## a

Vector or matrix with decimal numbers. a is an integer between 0 and 2^52-1. MathScript rounds a if a is not an integer.

## b

Controls the number of digits in c. If c has fewer than b digits, MathScript pads the beginning of c with zeros until it reaches b digits. b is an integer.

## c

Binary number equivalent to a. Valid binary digits are 0 and 1. c is a string.

A = 2562525
C = dec_to_bin(A)
