# Binary code

### What they Are And What They Do

## Binary

Binary is a 2 base code . And as it is a 2 base code it only uses 2 numbers (1 and 2) .

1 is on and 0 is off .

Binary can be found in two forms 4 bite (nibble) and 8 bite (byte)

Also binary is used in computers to store memory , There are 8 numbers (1,2,4,8,16,32,64,108 and 216) and they all add up to 256.

Like if we wonted to get 17 it would be 00010001 as you see 1 means that 16 and 1 are on and the other numbers are of

## Examples of Denary and Binarys

Binary is used for storing data

And

Denry is used for translating binary

## Denary

The

**decimal**numeral system (also called**base ten**or occasionally**denary**) has ten as itsbase. It is the numerical base most widely used by modern civilizations.## Binary clocks

A

**binary clock**is usually a clock which displays traditional sexagesimal time in a binary format. Originally, it showed*each decimal digit*of sexagesimal time as a binary value, but presently binary clocks also exist which display hours, minutes, and seconds as binary numbers.
