Binary Code - Definition

Binary Code is the most basic language a computer understands, it is composed of a series of 0s and 1s. It is also referred to as the binary numeral system, or base-2 number system. The computer interprets the code to form numbers, letters, punctuation marks, and symbols. As computers use the binary number system, powers of 2 play an important role. This is why everything in computers seems to come in 8s (2 to the 3rd power), 64s (2 to the 6th power), 128s (2 to the 7th power), and 256s (2 to the 8th power).
