Ed and I referenced the same web page. The first one that appears on
Google.com :)
I reread my response and noticed you do not know how binary works.
1011010 is not 14!
Think of base 10. Each position represents a power of 10. i.e. 10^0, 10^1,
10^2...
So 2578 = 2*(10^3)+ 5*(10^2)+7*(10^1)+8*(10^0)
Binary is similar. Each position represents a power of 2. i.e. 2^0, 2^1, 2^2...
So 1011010 = 1*(2^6)+0*(2^5)+1*(2^4)+1*(2^3)+0*(2^2)+1*(2^1)+0*(2^0)
or 90 base 10.
