How to find two’s complement of a decimal number?

Are you a student and want to learn the method to convert binary numbers to 2s complement? Here, we will explain the step by step method of two’s complement conversion without using the 2s complement calculator.

Example:

Find the two’s complement of (68)10.

Solution:

Step 1: Convert the decimal number into binary number.

(68)10 = (01000100)2

Step 2: Take the one’s complement of the binary number. 1’s complement can be taken by converting the 0’s to 1 and 1’s to zero.

1’s complement of (01000100) = 10111011

Step 3: Add 1 to the number produced in the last step.

2's complement

So, two’s complement binary number of (68)10 = 10111100.

Note: To calculate the 2’s complement of binary number, skip the 1st step. You can reverse the steps if you want to convert two's complement to decimal.
