Decimal representation

Binary is a base-2 number system that uses two mutually exclusive states to represent information. A binary number is made up of elements called bitswhere each bit can be in one of the two possible states. Generally, we represent them with the numerals 1 and 0. We also talk about them being true and false. Electrically, the two states might be represented by high and low voltages or some form of switch turned on or off.

We build binary numbers the same way we build numbers in our traditional base 10 system. However, instead of a one's column, a 10's column, a 100's column (and so on) we have a one's column, a two's columns, a four's column, an eight's column, and so on, as illustrated below.
