Our decimal system has base 10. It has the numbers 0 - 9.
binary: base 2 (numbers: 0 & 1)
But I don't know how to convert from one system to another. But on the wikipage there is a list of some systems and where they are used. (btw: base = radix)

Decimal is used because we have ten fingers. Computers are digital (off/on) so we use binary. Octal and hexadecimal are easy ways to represent binary

Number system are based on exponents. 10 raised to the power of 2, hundreds. 10 to the power of 3, thousands... and so on..
2 raised to 2 - 4, 2 raised to 3 - 8.... and so on
