In JavaScript, you can convert a string to a number with a specific base using the`parseInt()` function. The`parseInt()` function takes two arguments: the string to convert and the base to use for the conversion. Here's how you can do it:

``````1
2
3
4
``````
const stringToConvert = '101010';
const base = 2;
const convertedNumber = parseInt(stringToConvert, base);
``````

In this example,`stringToConvert` holds the string you want to convert, which is`'101010'`.`base` represents the base of the number system you want to use for the conversion, which is`2` for binary in this case. The`parseInt()` function takes these two arguments and converts the string to a number using the specified base. The result is stored in the`convertedNumber` variable. It's important to note that`parseInt()` assumes a base-10 conversion by default. However, by providing the`base` argument, you can specify a different base for the conversion, ranging from`2` to`36`. The base determines the valid digits for the number and the positional value of each digit. For example, if you want to convert a string to a hexadecimal number, you can use a base of`16`:

``````1
2
3
4
``````
const stringToConvert = 'FF';
const base = 16;
const convertedNumber = parseInt(stringToConvert, base);
``````

In this case, the`stringToConvert` is`'FF'`, representing the hexadecimal value. By specifying`base` as`16`, the`parseInt()` function converts the string to the corresponding decimal number. It's worth noting that`parseInt()` returns a number in base-10 format regardless of the specified base. If you need to represent the number in a specific base, you can use`Number.toString()` or`Number.toString(base)` to convert the number back to a string in the desired base.

``````1
2
3
4
``````
const number = 42;
const base = 16;
const stringInBase = number.toString(base);
``````

In this example,`number.toString(base)` converts the decimal`42` to the corresponding hexadecimal string`'2A'`. Ensure that the string and the base align correctly. If the string contains invalid characters for the specified base,`parseInt()` will return`NaN` (Not a Number). Also, consider the range limitations of the number representation in JavaScript, particularly for large numbers in bases other than 10.
