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>A little difficult at first..practice is the key i assume...</p><p>Thanks!</p><p>010000100110010100100000011100110111010101110010011001<br>010010000001110100011011110010000001100100011100100110<br>100101101110011010110010000001111001011011110111010101<br>110010001000000100111101110110011000010110110001110100<br>01101001011011100110010100101110</p>
<p>This is still somewhat difficult to understand. Thank you though.</p>
<p>For example the number 5:</p><p> 0 0 0 0 0 1 0 1</p><p> 128 64 32 16 8 4 2 1</p><p>5 goes into the an 8 bit code above with 4 and 1 making the number 5 as 1 is where 4 is and where the number 1 is..making 5.</p><p>Another example the number 9:</p><p> 0 0 0 0 1 0 0 1</p><p>128 64 32 16 8 4 2 1</p><p>A 1 is where 8 is and where 1 is..making 9.</p><p>Hopefully that helps!!</p>
<p>How do you make 10 then?</p>
<p>To make 10 in binary it is simple. it is 00001010 quick tip if there is a 1 at the end of the byte it will be negative but if there is a 0 it is positive.</p>
<p>It really helped, thanks! You can make any number, it's great, also the letters are simple now. :D</p>
If this is the case how do we write the numbers which is more that 255
<p>Ok...sorry....just started trying to figure this. Are we reading from left to right? So......true false f f t f f f f .......so if this is correct (please be patient) I've got that part. Now, how do we put the numbers into letters?</p>

I actually converted this by hand.<br>&quot;I hope you liked my Instructable. have fun translating this binary and practice practice practice.&quot;
<p>What I dont understand is why do you add three zeroes between saying it a capital letter (or lower case) and the actual letter. For example: 1(A) should be 1, and to my understanding, with the capital letter it should look like 01001, but above it is written as 01000001, where did the three 0s come from?</p>
There are 8 bits in a byte so there will be 8 numbers normally
<p>Because you need eight digits for each charcter or space</p>
<p>You made a mistake by the way for &quot;To make a space put the code 00100000 you put seven digits instead of eight </p><p>Just Saying</p>
I printed off your pages and started by trying to translate the part under step 3: Practice Practice Practice. It starts with binary and ends with words &quot;...a cool thing to do...&quot;. I got &quot;150 m i f i q 146 h h g d d f &quot; which makes no sense.
<p>I got the same thing, did you find out why that is?</p>
<p>Binary language just 8 degets mil kr hi ku ak word banta ha 7 , 6 ya 5 mil kr ku ni banata?</p><p>Plz ans me....................</p>

<p>It's still a bit difficult for me...</p>
<p>you need to fix this instructable. you need to explain that letters, and numbers correspond by multiplying them by their places coefficient, the way you make it sound is like they just add up the ones. so 00100101 - would be 3. instead of 37. </p>
<p>I found this very helpful, actually! Thank you for making this. </p><p>01001110 01101111 01110111 0010000 01001001 0010000 01110101 01101110 01100100 01100101 01110010 01110011 01110100 01100001 01101110 01100100 00101110</p>
<p>whoops, forgot one zero in the 00100000!</p>
How do we write the number which is higher than 255?
Add another byte (or eight bits) and continue counting up. If you've got 16 bits, you have 2^16 possible representations via the base 2 system. That's 65,536 possibilities.
<p>don't understand how to translate numbers into letters, read the explanations and makes no sense, as the other web sites have even less sense esp. the converters.</p>
AGREED ? my brain hurts, and I'm very intelligent, (seriously), so what the binary is the deal here!?!?
I just wanted to clear it up, so there's no misunderstanding, (I truly don't want to alienate myself from the group day 0), I was not trying to have what I said, come across as bragging, when I said, &quot;I was very intelligent&quot;. I said that so the difficulty of this skill was apparent, aposed to me just being seen as lazy, or unintelligent, and that's why I was having a hard time. I'll shut up now.
<p>I TRIED TO TRANSLATE YOUR PICTURE AND THIS IS WHAT I GOT &quot;THIS IS THE TUTORIAL TO LEARN BINARY N I HOPE YOU ENJOY IT&quot; .</p>
<p>it's true that in the ways you mention, English is one of the easier languages in the world. However, you left out one key element--that English, plain and simple, makes no sense</p><p>http://ielts31.blogspot.com/2013/08/top-ielts-speaking-tips-that-is-very.html</p>
<p><a href="http://www.convertbinary.com/alphabet.php" rel="nofollow">http://www.convertbinary.com/alphabet.php</a></p><p>For all those pussies who gave up... like I did 101 or 5</p>
I r confused...but ill look at it again
<p>errr...how do you do numbers?</p>
<p>You see... a single binary code for example &quot;01100001&quot; (a) has 8 digits. From the left to the right of the code &quot;01100001&quot; will be read as &quot;128 off, 64 on, 32 on, 16 off, 8 off, 4 off, 2 off, 1 on.&quot; Using the numbers 128, 64, 32, 16, 8, 4, 2, and 1, you can turn on aha series of digits to add up together the number you want. The number 16 in binary is 00110001 00110110 which is 1 and 6... thus forming 16...</p>
How its written like that can u explain further....
Binary without any code is numerical. The.code ie 0110 changes it into.letters.
<p>I have the same question..</p>
<p>you need to explain more on the first page about how the last 5 digits represent 16-8-4-2-1 as that was confusing at first. all you showed was the image and no info, you should maybe add how that works instead of just an image. But thanks for teaching me this, now i have a cool party trick : P XD</p>

<p>This is pretty good, I definitely suggest reading this.<br><br>If you want another angle on how to read binary: http://watislife.com/how-to-read-binary/</p>

<p>it was kind of confusing for me although i already know normal binary</p>
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>so on and so forth</p>
<p>It translates to, &quot;I hope you liked my instructable. have fun translating this binary and practice practice practice.&quot;</p>
