How binary works: The binary number system (aka base 2) represents values using two symbols, typically 0 and 1. Computers call these bits. A bit is either off (0) or on (1). When arranged in sets of 8 bits (1 byte) 256 values can be represented (0-255). Using an ASCII chart, these values can be mapped to characters and text can be stored.
In mathematics and computer science , the binary numeral system , or base-2 numeral system , represents numeric values using two symbols: 0 and 1 . More specifically, the usual base - 2 system is a positional notation with a radix of 2. Numbers represented in this system are commonly called binary numbers .
