Question and answer
Describe how the binary number system uses only 1s and 0s to represent numbers.
The binary numeral system (base 2 numerals) represents numeric values using two symbols, typically 0 and 1. More specifically, the usual binary numeral system is a positional notation with a radix of 2. [ Owing to its straightforward implementation in electronic circuitry, the binary system is used internally by virtually all modern computers. A binary number can be represented by any sequence
of bits (binary digits), which in turn may be represented by any mechanism capable of being in two mutually exclusive states. The following sequences of symbols could all be interpreted as the same binary numeric value: 1 0 1 0 0 1 1 0 1 0 | - | - - | | - | - x o x o o x x o x o y n y n n y y n y n The numeric value represented in each case is dependent upon the value assigned to each symbol. In a computer, the numeric values may be represented by two different voltages; on a magnetic disk, magnetic polarities may be used. ]
