I am sorry to bother you people again and I don't really know if this is the right place to put it.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

my great professor shows us in pdf format that

0.83(decimal)=0.1101(binary) because

0.83 x 2 = 1.66 carry 1

0.66 x 2 = 1.32 carry 1

0.32 x 2 = 0.64 carry 0

0.64 x 2 = 1.28 carry 1

My question is why he stops doing it at the fourth digit?

it seems you can still do the algarithm from 1.28 onward. why he stops?

THanx alot... I am drowning.
