So a while ago I wanted to learn binary. Binary is the way a computer holds information, the 1's and 0's. I thought it was cool, and that it would be worth learning. It is WELL worth learning and it is very simple to learn.

What I am showing you in this instructable, is how letters work.

Step 1: What binary is

What I am going to show you today in binary is simply just the replacement of letters and numbers, with their binary equivalent. 1 and 0 are just a representation of on and off. 1 = on 0 = off. There are put in sections of "on and off's" also, usually sets of 8, called a byte. The digits are all valued exponentially, the easiest way to explain what that means is to show you, it is in the first picture at the bottom.

This part isn't quite as important as others for the purpose of this instructable.

<p>01000011= K right?</p>
<p>There is no k only 1-9 and a-f</p>
<p>01000100 01010101 01001101 01000010 01000001 01010011 01010011</p>
<p>01001100 01001101 01000001 01001111</p><p>I now get it! </p>
<p>your so dumb :&quot;)</p>
*You're <br>Just so you don't look dumb as well in the future :)
<p>We have a &quot;Be Nice&quot; comment policy.</p><p>;)</p>
<p>hey man i don't know where you are getting your information but you are completely wrong with that, an eight digit binary code has all english letters and and can go up to 257.</p>
<p>my bad 255</p>
256 u forgot 00000000
<p>this comment looks like a diss, like he's actually saying &quot;OOOOHHHHHHH&quot;</p>
<p>01001011 01101011 01001011 01101011 01001011 01101011 01001011 01101011 01001011 01101011 01001011 01101011 01001011 01101011 01001011 01101011 01001011 01101011 01001011 01101011 01001011 01101011 01001011</p>
<p>if there was no g-z then binary wouldn't be a legitimate language</p>
<p>&quot;a-f&quot; or &quot;1-9&quot; is not correct for any number system. &quot;0-9&quot; followed <br>by &quot;a-f&quot; is hexadecimal which I'm guessing is what you're remembering.</p>
<p>No, that means C</p>
<p>0100 1011 = K<br>K is the 11th letter in the alphabet.<br>0100 means this is a capital letter.<br>The second 4bit 'pack' represents each letter so the 11th letter is 1011 because if you're reading from the right to the left there is a 1, a 2 and a 8 but no 4.. hope you can understand me :P<br><br></p>
<p>01000010 01110101 01110011 01101000 00100000 01100100 01101001 01100100 00100000 00111001 00101111 00110001 00110001</p>
<p>Very meaningful code AntonA35, my personal favorite is 01001001 00100000 01100001 01101101 00100000 01001010 01100101 01110111 01101001 01110011 01101000, the meaning behind it is truly 01000001 00110001. </p>
<p>hey i am new to this thing can you guys help me </p>
<p>hey here is a tip for u skip 3 first letters from left and u count the ones like so 01101001 from right to left the first digit is one second is two third is four fourth is eight. Like so and then you put the together</p>
<p>I would like some help I,am new to all of this can any one help me</p>

<p>Translation: thank you for bringing the world of instructables to us :-) x2</p>
Can you add a translator?
Like a=________<br>B=__________...
So if you have the code 01101111<br>That only goes from a-o
How do you get all the other letters?
<p>eliminate the last digit in 0100 or 0110 which is zero. Therefore, P is 01010000 and p is 01110000.</p>
<p>thank u</p>
<p>so on and so forth</p>
<p>You can add another bit to the end by simply adding another digit. Keep the &quot;0110&quot; or &quot;0100&quot; at the very beginning to tell the reader that it is a letter and whether it is capital or lowercase. For example, &quot;z&quot; would be 010011010. This would mean lowercase + 16 + 8 + 2 = lowercase z. Most computers &quot;talk&quot; in numbers, not letters, so most of the time computers use only eight-digit codes, but for letters above o, you must add more bits. </p>
<p>I was able to digest this quickly. And now I am obsessed. Bad side affect, I seem to be dreaming in Binary Code now. I kid you not. Pretty soon, if this keeps up, I will convince my self that I am receiving info from other beings. Will let you know how it turns out. If I am not confined to a straight jacket.</p>
<p>hahahaaa &quot;I'm not in a straight jacket&quot;....Well i beleive u anyways! shall await ur messages from the ETs!</p><p>it was Galileo who said &quot;mathematics is the language god wrote the universe with!&quot;</p>
<p>how it turn out</p>
<p>well.. try not to die</p>
<p>well.. try not to die</p>
<p>well.. try not to die</p>
<p>well.. try not to die</p>
<p>well.. try not to die</p>
<p>well.. try not to die</p>
<p>How do you differentiate between numbers and letters?</p>
<p>By converting the binary to ASCII</p><p>I wrote a program that converts strings to ASCII, which made this quite easy (I'm wanting to make it convert the ASCII into binary whenever I think about how I'll do that).</p><p>For instance, the name Will, when converted to ASCII, is 87 105 108 108. Each number is then converted to binary, with the result being </p><p>01010111 01101001 01101100 01101100.</p><p>Pic related, the program (I know it's disgusting, it abuses the language but it does what I need it to do), the result, and converting your username to binary.</p>
<p>00110000 is numbers 01000001 uppercase letters and 01100001 is lower case letters </p>
<p>Simply put, you cannot. You must use your intuition to differentiate between the two. </p>
<p>For some odd reason, my comment got cut. Add the following to the end of the explanation.</p><p>So, for example, while &quot;01000011&quot; is 3 if it is used alongside &quot;01000001&quot; (which would be 1) and &quot;010010100&quot; (which would be 20), it would rather be interpreted as c-a-t. Now, as you may have just noticed when I did lowercase t in the example above, I used nine digits. Binary can use more than just eight digits. Most computers use only eight digits, but if more numbers are needed, more numbers can be added. The terms would continue to go up by a multiple of 2, so the ninth digit would be 256, the tenth digit would be 512, and so on. Then, just as before, you would stick the &quot;0110&quot; (for capital) or &quot;0100&quot; (for lowercase) in front of the digits.</p>
<p>WHAT THE.....I didn't get it!</p>
Is it hard?:''| i wanna learn it and write a letter
<p>So how do you write from decimal to binary numbers?</p>
