A guys how do you convert 2.2(dec) to binary number.
And how can I find a chart that I can check my results.
Thanks

There are a lot of ways to do so, a bunch of IEEE standards and so. You can use either fixed or floating point notation. Do you have any specific requirements?

The requirements are: Write a conversion program for a decimal number to binary and vice versa. Binary numbers are of 16 bits: Write a conversion program for a decimal number to binary and vice versa. Binary numbers are of 16 bits: 8 bits for the whole number and 8 bits for the decimal part.
I have a program decimal to binary(only regular numbers).
I just need to add 16 bites and Write a conversion program for a decimal number to binary and vice versa. Binary numbers are of 16 bits: 8 bits for the whole number and 8 bits for the decimal part.

Then use fix point notation, and simply multiply the rational number with 2^8 and take the integer part. Now you can use your program to convert it to binary.
Converting back is the same: use your program to convertthe binary form to decimal, and divide it with 2^8 converting the result to a float (some precision will be lost, and also, it won't be as efficient as the floating point notation, but it is simple)
