Are you sure that you want to convert a 5 bit decimal number, and not a 5 digit decimal number?
What is the expected result if the input number is 65536 or larger? What is the expected result if the input number is negative? Does the negative sign count as a digit?

Do it the same way you'd do it manually then. divide the number by two repeatedly. The bits are the remainder of the division at each step.

As this is most likely homework. No, I cannot give you code.
It's not hard anyway. Use a for loop, divide the number by 2, calculate the remainder and store it into a vector.
