Binary is a numbering system used to express numbers in 2 states. These two states are 0 and 1. The binary numbering system is very important for computer and IT systems because of the different types of hardware using a binary system like CPU, RAM, GPU, HDD, NIC, etc.
Binary numbering system provides two values named and
1. There is no number like
5 or similar in binary. Computers mainly use these binary values in order to process, read, write data.
Binary numbers are highly related with the boolean logic. Boolean Logic is a logic which is mainly used in computers and mathematics. binary values are used to express the false logic where
1 is used to express the true logic. We can also use different logic operators like
EXOR etc. Here are some Boolean Logic calculations with binary values.
1 AND 1 = 1 1 OR 0 = 1 1 AND 0 = 0 1 XOR 0 =1 1 XOR 1 = 0
Binary and Decimal Numbers
Binary numbers can cen be converted into decimal numbers and vise versa. For example
11 binary value is equal to
3 in decimal numbering system.
|Decimal Value||Binary Value||Base-2 Representation|
|3||11||21 + 2|
|6||110||22 + 21|
|7||111||22 + 21 + 2|
|9||1001||23 + 2|
|10||1010||23 + 21|
