An interesting fact about the computer system

How does it manipulate and store data?

 Binary (or base-2) a numeric system that only uses two digits — 0 and 1.

  •       Computers operate in binary, meaning they store data and perform calculations using only zeros and ones.
  •       A single binary digit can only represent True (1) or False (0) in Boolean logic.
  •       Computers use the binary number system to manipulate and store all of their data including numbers, words, videos, graphics, and music.

Step 1 – Take a Number, divide that number by 2, and write the integer value of the quotient (ignore the decimal part).

Step2- Again divide the integer quotient by 2 and write integer value of quotient (ignore the decimal part).  Repeat steps till quotient will be 1.

Ex. (23)10=(?)2

Note-Write 1(ON) for odd numbers and 0 (Off) for even numbers.

Thus, the binary value of (23)10 = (10111)2
