Computers are mostly used to store information and extract information from it. Python is one of the most powerful programming languages. We can use Python to get computers to do most of the routine processes. This blog is all about how we can convert binary to int in Python.

**How can you convert binary to int in Python?**

**Approach 1:**

Binaries are represented in Python by adding the prefix `0b`

before the binary representation. As demonstrated below, it immediately can convert binary to int.

```
b1 = 0b0110
print(b1)
```

Result:

`6 `

**Approach 2: **

The identical outcome can also be obtained using the `int`

function. To turn a number into an integer, we also need to change both the number and its base (remember that 2 is the base of binary values).

```
b1 = int('0110',2)
print(b1)
```

Result:

`6`

**Approach 3: **

Recent versions of Python include a novel and effective method of formatting strings called `fstrings`

. They can be used to perform binary to integer conversions like the ones displayed below:

`print(f'{0b0110:#0}')`

Result:

`6`

The binary number in this case is `0b101`

, and `#0`

is used to indicate that it should be converted to a decimal value.

### Approach 4:

A tiny user-specified function can be used for converting a binary value to an integer, so let’s creat it. The snippet of code below demonstrates how:

```
def binary2int(binary):
int_val, i, n = 0, 0, 0
while(binary != 0):
a = binary % 10
int_val = int_val + a * pow(2, i)
binary = binary//10
i += 1
print(int_val)
binary2int(101)
```

Result:

```
5
```
