Recently I have been learning about binary numbers in my digital media class and here I have learned a few things about what binary numbers and how they are used to communicate. If you have no idea what binary numbers are or are confused in anyway about them than this is definitely the blog post for you.
That may look like an intimidating picture but in reality it is only 0’s and 1’s. But when you put 0’s and 1’s together in a sequence, you come up with an actual letter. But how is that used to communicate? You see when you arrange 0’s and 1’s to get letters as long as you know how to spell you can make words and even sentences if you have the patience to write out all of those 0’s and 1’s.
When I was first introduced to binary numbers I was really confused just like everyone else in my class. But I found out that just stretching my patience a little longer proved to teach me everything that I know now about binary numbers. It’s a lot of new material when you first learn it but once you remember all of the facts then you know binary numbers. When I finally grasped the idea of binary numbers it was such an interesting revelation because of the facts that I learned were proving everything to be true. Back then to me it was mind blowing. Now I think of it as an easy topic to talk about and easy to understand even though I took so long to grasp it.
So if you’re just now learning about binary numbers don’t be scared for it it is actually really easy to understand if you stretch your patience a bit and listen carefully. And if you don’t know anything about them, I hope this post helped you in someway to at least know the definition of a binary number.
