Converting (binary,hex,octal) to decimal numbers in JavaScript

Converting (binary,hex,octal) to decimal numbers in JavaScript

In the last tutorial, we have learned how to convert decimal to (binary, hexadecimal, octal) numbers. In this tutorial, we are going to learn how to convert binary, hexadecimal and octal to decimal numbers in JavaScript.

parseInt

In JavaScript, we have the parseInt() method by using that we can make conversions.

The parseInt( ) method takes the two arguments, the first argument is string and the second argument is base by using that it returns the decimal number of a specified base.

Let’s see the examples.

Converting binary to decimal

To convert a binary to decimal we need to pass base 2 as a second argument to the parseInt method.

const binaryNumber = "1100";

console.log(parseInt(binaryNumber,2)); // base 2

//output--> 12

Converting hexadecimal to decimal

To convert a hexadecimal to decimal we need to pass base 16 as a second argument to the parseInt method.

const hex = "c";

console.log(parseInt(hex,16));  //hex base-16

//output --> 12

Converting octal to decimal

To convert a octal to decimal we need to pass base 8 as a second argument to the parseInt method.

const octal = "14";

console.log(parseInt(octal,8));  //octal base-8

//output --> 12
