## Addition in Binary

Addition in binary is not as simple as you may think. Here is a a couple ways of working it out.

So if you have the equation:

1010

1100

10110

This translates as

10 +

12

22

This is a simple method however there is a much more difficult way however more efficient way of doing it which is working out the equation in binary without translating it over in to human numbers. It works as follows:

Take the equation

0101 +

1001

Now to works this out you need to first of all add the two ones on the right hand side together to make 10 then you ski the next one because they only involve 0's and 1+0 equals 1 and finally 0+1 equals 1 so you should end up with 1110 which equals 14 in human numbers which is the correct answer!
