In the Universe, info is written in the hidden language of binary code. If you never heard about it, read this article. Now you will learn:

### What is binary

Binary code is what info is written in 1/0, true/false, on/off, accept/deny and also nice/mean. You can think of binary like that. Well, here is how to code in binary:

0 = 0

1 = 1

2 = 10

3 = 11

4 = 100

5 = 101

6 = 110

7 = 111

8 = 1000

9 = 1001

10 = 1010

My way to tell binary is mashing my head in the keyboard, so:

0 = 4637825638685568

1 = 834293579385928569823

2 = 1735698656356565664321403

3 = 458371245832458354328147432137

## More in-depth explanation

Just like how base 10 has 10 digits (0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9), binary has 2 digits (0, 1), making it base 2.

Each new digit to the left is just the previous digit times 2 (with the exception of the 2nd digit).

If a digit is 0, it is "off", meaning that it does not do anything. If a digit is 1, it is "on", meaning that it will add its place value to the number.

0 would just be 0 in binary.

1 would be 1 in binary.

2 would be 10 in binary, as the 2nd digit is 2. 2 + 0 would be 2, so it is just 2.

3 in binary would be 11, as the second and first digit are on. 2 + 1 = 3, so it is 3.

4 in binary would be 100, as the 3rd digit (4) is on while the rest aren't. 4 is just 4.

5 in binary would be 101, as the 3rd digit (4) and the first digit (1) are on. 4 + 1 = 5.

6 in binary would be 110, as the 3rd digit and the 2nd digit are on. 4 (third digit)+ 2 (second digit) = 6.

7 in binary would be 111. Since all the digits are on, it is 4 + 2 + 1, which equals 7.

You can continue this for as long as you want.
