Binary Code

What is Binary Code?

Binary code is a system of representing information using only two symbols: typically 0 and 1. It is used to encode data in computers and other electronic devices.

In binary code, each character or symbol is represented using a unique combination of 0s and 1s. For example, the letter "A" might be represented as 01000001, and the number "3" might be represented as 0011. Each 0 or 1 is called a "bit," and a group of 8 bits is called a "byte."

Binary code is used because it is a simple and reliable way to represent and transmit data electronically. It is also easy for computers to process and manipulate binary data, as computers use electronic circuits that can be in one of two states: on or off.

Binary code is used in a variety of applications, including data storage, communication, and programming. It is an important foundation of modern computing and plays a central role in the operation of computers and other electronic devices.
