Binary to decimal and vice-versa in python

Write Python code for converting a decimal number to it’s binary equivalent and vice-versa.

Example:

From decimal to binary
Input : 8
Output : 1 0 0 0


From binary to decimal
Input : 100
Output : 4



Decimal to binary

Keep calling conversion function with n/2  till n > 1,
later perform n % 1 to get MSB of converted binary number.  
Example :- 7
1). 7/2 = Quotient = 3(grater than 1), Remainder = 1.
2). 3/2 = Quotient = 1(not grater than 1), Remainder = 1.
3). 1%2 = Remainder = 1.
Therefore, answer is 111.

        # divide with integral result 
        # (discard remainder) 
        decimalToBinary(n//2
  
      
    print(n%2, end=' ')
      
      
  
# Driver code 
if __name__ == '__main__'
    decimalToBinary(8
    print("\n")
    decimalToBinary(18
    print("\n")
    decimalToBinary(7
    print("\n")

Binary to decimal

Example -: 1011
1). Take modulo of given binary number with 10. 
    (1011 % 10 = 1)
2). Multiply rem with 2 raised to the power
    it's position from right end. 
    (1 * 2^0)
    Note that we start counting position with 0. 
3). Add result with previously generated result.
    decimal = decimal + (1 * 2^0)
4). Update binary number by dividing it by 10.
    (1011 / 10 = 101)
5). Keep repeating upper steps till binary > 0.

Final Conversion -: (1 * 2^3) + (0 * 2^2) +
                 (1 * 2^1) + (1 * 2^0) = 11
