I’ve always been good with math since I could add 1 and 1 and get 10…

Like this kind of math;

1 10 11 100 101 110 111 .......

Once I was wondering what the biggest number of binary I can think of would be in decimal.

It’s easy peasy, it goes like this:

1x2^16+1x2^15+0x2^14+1x2^13+1x2^12+1x2^11+0x2^10+0x2^9+1x2^8+0x2^7+1x2^6+1x2^5+1x2^4+0x2^3+1x2^2+1x2^1+1x2^0 =

1x131072+1x65536+0x32768+1x16384+1x8192+1x4096+0x2048+0x1024+1x256+0x128+1x64+1x32+1x16+0x8+1x4+1x2+1x1 =

(Removing those multiplied with zero’s)

131072+65536+16384+8192+4096+256+64+32+4+2+1 = 225575 in decimal

Edit. Anyone please confirm I’m not loosing my math skillz. I didn’t use a calculator, just added in my head.
