How do you mean, 'learn binary' - do you want to convert decimal to binary (and vice-versa). It's quite easy

01100011 = 99

The way to work it out is as follows:

MSB 128   64   32   16   8   4   2   1   LSB
         0     1     1     0     0   0   1   1

All the bits that are 'turned on' i.e. 1, you add together

64+32+2+1=99

If I got anything wrong, its because its too early in the morning

Just to make this clear, binary is not a language it is a number system.  You do not "say words in binary", that is like asking how to say words in decimal.  There are various ways to encode characters in binary, the most common ones being Unicode and its subset ASCII.  But how binary is interpreted depends on what is reading it so just learning binary is really not all that useful in and of itself.  :)

Zero Override here's a simpler way to know how to convert things in binary and its how i convert things.

to convert lets say denary 24 to binary you just have to first divide 24 into 2 then the result divided by 2 and so on.

2/24 = 12 - remainder 0
2/12 = 6   - remainder 0
2/6   = 3   - remainder 0
2/3   = 1   - remainder 1
2/1   = 0   - remainder 1

so the binary equivalent of denary 24 is 11000

if you want to convert a different value you have to do the same process. but remember when you have reached a result of zero like  the 2/1=0, we cannot divide the number any further and therefore you take the list of the remainder to be our answer. Reading the remainders from bottom upwards produces an answer that is read from left to right.

ring ring ring

that means thats the end of this session class dismiss :biggrin:

Is there a binary decoder anywhere online?

A bit back to the original question:

I know that computers have all of their information in binary - using bits. But I wondered - can a human being write down certain code or information in binary for the computer, so that he'll be able to process that information?

(Not that a human being can really learn to code in binary, I think...)
