help with problem

Posted by andre on October 19, 2001 at 10:10 PM

if someone could help with the following it would be greatly appreaciated, problem:
Write program that allows the user to input a non-negative decimal integer and then displays that value in binary. For example if the user inputs ``13'' the program should output ``1101''.

Hint: The program should use this strategy:

Divide the decimal number by 2, keeping the quotient and the remainder (which will be either 0 or 1).
Prepend the remainder to a string
Keep dividing and prepending the remainder to the string until the quotient is zero.

i have problems with the algoriths, how do i convert the decimal to a binary and then display it in a string? please use the abovestrategy, thanks
