nona the britThere are 10 types of people in this world; those who understand binary and those who don't.
Actually this is kind of funny! I just got it..

Thanks for sharing anyway!...


so, 35 would be


1 for 32, 1 for 2, and 1 for 1.

Students: Are you brave enough to let our tutors analyse your pronunciation?
"11 cheers for binary!"
I read through all of these posts and this one is the most useful! Simply put, but perfectly put! Emotion: smile
Teachers: We supply a list of EFL job vacancies
In binary the "bit" values are 256, 128, 64, 32, 16, 8, 4, 2, 1 in that order, if number corresponding to that place is 1 (on/yes) then that value is in the number 0 (off/no) means its not, it it's not visible, it's not there, so 10 means "no" to the "1" bit and the "1" means "yes" to the 2 bit... 2+0 =2, so 10= 2 in binary. So there are 10 (2) types of people... It a VERY funny joke when you get it.

Um, no. It's bad enough with overly complicated answers without just plain wrong answers.

When we sat that a counting system has a "base," we mean how "high," starting with zero, each column goes before we add the next one, with is one power higher. Thus, in the decimal system, we go 0,1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9. For hexadecimal (also used by computers) we go 0,1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,a,b,c,d,e,f.

So, if we want to say "two" in binary, we say that we have 1 in the two column, and 0 in the one column (we can't have 2 in the second column unless we're using a system that goes to at least three). Forty-two , on the other hand would be 1 in the thirty-two column, 0 in the sixteen column, 1 in the eight column, 0 in the four column, 1 in the two column and 0 in the one column, thus: 101010. (Hitchhiker fan here)
You are forgetting another type of people.. the 3rd type...

The type who didnt expect this joke to be in base 3!
