# HackerRank Day 10 Solution in Python: Binary Numbers

Today we will see the HackerRank Day 10 Solution in Python. The problem is named Binary Numbers which is part of 30 Days of code on HackerRank. Let’s get started!

## Day 10: Binary Numbers Problem statement

We are given a base-10 integer(n), and we have to convert it to binary (base-2). And then we have to find and print the base-10 integer denoting the maximum number of consecutive 1’s in n’s binary representation.

Sample Case 1:
Input: 5
Output: 1
Explanation: The binary representation of 5 is 101, so the maximum number of consecutive 1’s is 1.

Sample Case 2:
Input: 13
Output: 1101
Explanation: The binary representation of 13 is 1101, so the maximum number of consecutive 1’s is 2.

You can solve the problem here.

## HackerRank Day 10 Solution in Python

```#!/bin/python3

import math
import os
import random
import re
import sys

if __name__ == '__main__':
n = int(input().strip())

#List to store the binary format
lst = []

#Convert the number to binary and store in list
while n > 0:
remainder = n % 2
n = n//2
lst.append(remainder)

count = 0
max_count = 0

for bit in lst:
#If bit is 1 count value is incremented
if bit == 1:
count += 1
#If count is greater than max_count, count is assigned to max_count
if max_count < count:
max_count = count
#If bit is not 1 then count becomes 0
else:
count = 0

print(max_count)```

## Code Explanation:

• We get the input number as n
• We create a list lst to store the binary representation of the number.
• Then, we run a loop, till n becomes zero to get the last digits and append them in the list lst.
• We create two variables count and max_count to store the current count of one and the maximum count of one respectively.
• Then for every number in the list, we check whether it is equal to one.
• If it is equal to one, then we increment the count value and check if the count is greater than max_count. If the count is greater than max-count then we assign the count value to max_count
• Else we will assign the count value as 0.
• Finally, we print the max_count value which gives us the maximum count of consecutive ones present in the binary representation of the number.
