# Day 2 of 100DaysOfCode: Decimal to Binary

This second day of my #100daysofcode. I gave my time to learn new concept about Python from Coursera in a topic Python Data Structure(File read/write and lists) etc. Again I completed one challenge. Here is a code which was converting Decimal to Binary using python.

``````dec = int(input("Enter a decimal number. "))
curr_dec = dec
rem = 0
octal = []
num = 2
while True:
if curr_dec % num == 0:
rem = 0
curr_dec = int(curr_dec/num)
octal.append(rem)
else:
if curr_dec < num:
octal.append(curr_dec)
break
rem = curr_dec % num
curr_dec = int(curr_dec/num)
octal.append(rem)

octal = octal[::-1]
x = [str(i) for i in octal ]
x = "".join(x)
print(x)

``````

I hope you save your code on some remote server.. rewrite this code again using functions and until you get there, you are doing good..

Yeah nice idea. Thanks
