Decimal to Binary using recursion and without using power operator

  • Difficulty Level : Easy
  • Last Updated : 06 May, 2021

Given an integer N, the task is convert and print the binary equaiva;ent of N.
Examples: 
 

Input: N = 13 
Output: 1101
Input: N = 15 
Output: 1111 
 

 

Approach Write a recursive function that takes an argument N and recursively calls itself with the value N / 2 as the new argument and prints N % 2 after the call. The base condition will be when N = 0, simply print 0 and return out of the function in that case.
Below is the implementation of the above approach: 
 

C++




// C++ implementation of the approach
#include <bits/stdc++.h>
using namespace std;
 
// Recursive function to convert n
// to its binary equivalent
void decimalToBinary(int n)
{
    // Base case
    if (n == 0) {
        cout << "0";
        return;
    }
 
    // Recursive call
    decimalToBinary(n / 2);
    cout << n % 2;
}
 
// Driver code
int main()
{
    int n = 13;
 
    decimalToBinary(n);
 
    return 0;
}

Java




// Java implementation of the approach
import java.io.*;
 
class GFG
{
     
 
// Recursive function to convert n
// to its binary equivalent
static void decimalToBinary(int n)
{
    // Base case
    if (n == 0)
    {
        System.out.print("0");
        return;
    }
 
    // Recursive call
    decimalToBinary(n / 2);
    System.out.print( n % 2);
}
 
// Driver code
public static void main (String[] args)
{
    int n = 13;
 
    decimalToBinary(n);
}
}

Python3




# Python3 implementation of the approach
 
# Recursive function to convert n
# to its binary equivalent
def decimalToBinary(n) :
     
    # Base case
    if (n == 0) :
        print("0",end="");
        return;
     
    # Recursive call
    decimalToBinary(n // 2);
    print(n % 2,end="");
 
 
# Driver code
if __name__ == "__main__" :
 
    n = 13;
    decimalToBinary(n);

C#




// C# implementation of the approach
using System;
     
class GFG
{
     
    // Recursive function to convert n
    // to its binary equivalent
    static void decimalToBinary(int n)
    {
         
        // Base case
        if (n == 0)
        {
            Console.Write("0");
            return;
        }
 
        // Recursive call
        decimalToBinary(n / 2);
        Console.Write(n % 2);
    }
 
    // Driver code
    public static void Main(String[] args)
    {
        int n = 13;
 
        decimalToBinary(n);
    }
}

Javascript




<script>
// javascript implementation of the approach
 
    // Recursive function to convert n
    // to its binary equivalent
    function decimalToBinary(n) {
        // Base case
        if (n == 0) {
            document.write("0");
            return;
        }
 
        // Recursive call
        decimalToBinary(parseInt(n / 2));
        document.write(n % 2);
    }
 
    // Driver code
     
        var n = 13;
 
        decimalToBinary(n);
