Program to Convert Binary to Decimal in Java

Here you will get program to convert binary to decimal in Java.

There are mainly two ways to convert a binary number to decimal number in Java.

1. By using parseInt() method of Integer class.
2. By using user defined logic.

Program to Convert Binary to Decimal in Java

By using Integer.parseInt()

Integer.parseInt() method takes two arguments. First argument is a string and second argument is the base or radix in which we have to convert the number. The output is the integer represented by the string argument in the specified radix. Below is the program for it.



Without using Integer.parseInt()

In this method we have to define our own logic for converting binary number to decimal. The approach that we will use here is mentioned in below example.

The program that implements above approach is mentioned below.

    1. Dear anything multioliwd by 0 is 0 so dont maje afool of urself writing such a lengty program and confusing the beginners the abov prog is already correct

  3. import*;
    class BinaryToDecimal
    public static void main(String [] args) throws IOException
    BufferedReader br = new BufferedReader (new InputStreamReader (;
    System.out.println(“Enter a binary a number:”);
    String a = br.readLine();
    char x[] = a.toCharArray();
    int power=0;
    long decimal=0 , sum=0;
    for(int i =x.length-1 ; i>=0;i–)

    int z = (int)java.lang.Math.pow(2,power);
    sum = sum + ((x[i])*(z));

    1. hi Pardeep,

      Integer is a class (wrapper class) and parseInt() is a method .
      When we convert a String to int data type , we use this method [parseInt()].For Instance-

      String number=”1273″;
      int number2= Integer.parseInt(number); // “1273” to 1273

      so this method will convert a String (that has digits) to an int . and that 2 after comma is the base of that number.
      like Integer.parseInt(“1000”,10) denotes that the number has decimal base ,
      Integer.parseInt(“1000”) is the same .

      but Integer.parseInt(“1000”,2) means that the number has binary base.
      and Integer.parseInt(“1000”,8 ) means that the number has octal base
      finally Integer.parseInt(“1000”,16) means that the number has hexadecimal base

      in all of these above cases the number will be converted to a number in int type ,i.e. to a decimal number.

    1. When we divide any number with 10 the last digit of number is removed from result. For example 123/10 = 12, we have to extract digits from last one be one thats why we used n%10 and n/10.

  4. import java.util.Scanner;

    class BinaryToDecimal
    public static void main(String args[])
    Scanner s=new Scanner(;

    System.out.println(“Enter a binary number:”);
    int n=s.nextInt();

    int decimal=0,p=0;

  5. Hello Sir,
    My query is how could I convert a very very large binary number of length of 10^10 in an efficient way otherwise by our simple method it would take many seconds to convert such number.

    Please help me I have been searching for a long time.
