The result can be arrived by adding all the numbers together from the right side towards left and carrying over if both of them are 1. Conversion is done from right to left by adding all the numbers starting by 1 multiplying by 2 for every digit count and multiplying by the value itself, so 1*0+1*2*1+ 1*2*2*1+....
