This
is a system of binary & decimal no. converter –
0 â€“
0 – #
1 â€“
1 – &
2 â€“
10 – &#
3 â€“
11 – &&
4 â€“
100 – &##
5 â€“
101 – &#&
Starting
from the right side, each digit is multiplied with power of 2 (starting with 20,
21 , 22 and so on. Then all these are added to form
decimal system.
1              0              1
So,
as for 5 – &#&, that means 101            ->            (1×20)  + (0x21) + (1×22)=
5
Same
as,
ans.
6-  1010011 = (1x 20) +(1×21)
+(0x22) +(0x23) +(1×24) +(0x25)
+(1×26)
=1
+ 2 + 0 + 0 + 16 + 0 + 64 = 83

Same
as others.
