The binary system consists of only two digits: 0 and 1. What are 0 and 1 called?
Binary system of numbers is used to represent the different numbers in the form of 0's and 1's. This is used to send, receive and transfer information among various servers, systems and networks.
Answer: In a binary system, the 0's and 1's are known as bits.
Let's understand the solution in detail.
Bits are the basic elements of a binary number.
In a binary system, bits are represented by 0's and 1's.
For example, we can represent the decimal number 33 as 100001. Hence, 32 is a six-bit number in the binary system, where 0's and 1's are the bits.
Similarly, 15 can be written as 1111 which is a 4-bit number.
