#### Transcript of Binary Code

Computers are built from collections of

switches which can be either on (1) or off (0).

Decimal numbers are converted into binary

and the computations are done by switches

flipping from off to on or from on to off.

BINARY CODE

Binary:

Binary is relating to, using, or expressed in a system of numerical notation that has 2 rather than 10 as a base.

**Binary Code**

Binary codes are used in computers because they are used to represent information in the digital world.

Code:

A system of words, letters, figures, or other symbols substituted for other words, letters, etc., esp. for the purposes of secrecy.

Why is a Binary Code used?

How is Binary Code used?

A binary code is defined as a coding system that uses two binary digits, 0 - 1, to represent a letter, number.

More Information About Binary Codes

Binary codes make the analysis and designing of digital circuits if we use the binary codes.

The modern, or present day binary code was made by Claude Shannon.

Francis Bacon was using a binary code with letters from the alphabet to cipher, so aaab & aabb, etc. are exactly the same as binary.

1001 is the way you say a nine in binary digits. This will slow you down when you are trying to do something fast.

When people are writing binary code they will use OR and AND statements to determine the result

Advantages of a Binary Code

Binary codes are suitable for the computer applications.

**By Michael McKenna and Jacobi Deal**

Binary code includes series of 1's and 0's to represent characters, including letters and numbers, on a computer.

Binary codes are suitable for the digital communications.

It is simple to understand without any unclear status. It is a beautiful "language" and it helps to transmit data in a clear state.

Since only 0 & 1 are being used, implementation becomes easy.
