Hello Nona:

Would you explain to me the joke? I read but I don't understand what it meant to say.

Thank you.
Binary is a system of counting that uses a base unit of 2 instead of 10. You can actually count with any base unit.

It only uses 0s and 1s and the number 10, in binary code, means 2. Bit hard to explain here briefly, you need to go and look at the link below if you are really interested. The joke is funny if you understand binary, and not if you don't, which is what the joke itself is saying. It's a sort of mathematical pun!

sorry but that is not how you count, the first number is 0*2 to the power of 0, so zerro, the second number is 1*2 to the power of 1. And it keeps on going like that, 100 would be 1*2 to the power of 2, so its 4 Emotion: smile
