Step by Step Guide for Year 7
What is Binary?
Firstly, binary is a numeric system which uses two numerals to represent all real numbers. While the most common counting system (the decimal system) uses ten numerals, binary uses 0 and 1. Usually we use base 10( the decimal system) the denary system but a computer uses base 2 and there are 2 different digits (1 and 0) and the first few numbers are 1,10,11,100,101,110,111,1000 and 1001. In Arithmetic, base 2 is actually easier than base 10 but the numbers are much longer.A denary number is a number in the base 10 or more commonly known as the decimal system. The base of a numeral system refers to the number of numerals that are used for expressing a number in that system. Denary numbers use 10 numerals these are 0,1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8, and 9.
