# Binary converter

A **binary converter** tool is a tool that converts a number from one number system (such as decimal or hexadecimal) into binary, and vice versa, which is a system represented by only two symbols: 0 and 1. This type of conversion is often used in computer science and engineering when working with binary data, as computers store and process data in binary format. A binary converter can be used to quickly convert numbers into binary representation, or to convert binary back into a more human-readable format, such as decimal or hexadecimal.
