    Number of possible digits in a binary representation of a number

    Hi all,

    Suppose that when n is written in decimal notation it has 100 digits. Which
    possibilities are there for the number of digits if n is written in binary notation?

    Any ideas?

    Thanks

    This is a very weird question since the OP already posted a question in this same Number Theory asking about this and the answer was there...
