  • Difficulty Level : Easy
  • Last Updated : 05 Jul, 2017

Given a number in decimal number convert it into binary, octal and hexadecimal number. Here is function to convert decimal to binary, decimal to octal and decimal to hexadecimal.


Input : 55
Output : 55  in Binary :  0b110111
         55 in Octal :  0o67
         55  in Hexadecimal :  0x37

Input : 282
Output : 282  in Binary :  0b100011010
         282 in Octal :  0o432
         282  in Hexadecimal :  0x11a

One solution is to use the approach discussed in below post.

Convert from any base to decimal and vice versa

Python provides direct functions for standard base conversions like bin(), hex() and oct()

# Python program to convert decimal to binary,
# octal and hexadecimal
# Function to convert decimal to binary
def decimal_to_binary(dec):
    decimal = int(dec)
    # Prints equivalent decimal
    print(decimal, " in Binary : ", bin(decimal))
# Function to convert decimal to octal
def decimal_to_octal(dec):
    decimal = int(dec)
    # Prints equivalent decimal
    print(decimal, "in Octal : ", oct(decimal))
# Function to convert decimal to hexadecimal
def decimal_to_hexadecimal(dec):
    decimal = int(dec)
    # Prints equivalent decimal
    print(decimal, " in Hexadecimal : ", hex(decimal))
# Driver program
dec = 32


32  in Binary :  0b100000
32 in Octal :  0o40
32  in Hexadecimal :  0x20
