The Math / Science

Binary numbers are comprised of zeros (0) and ones (1).  The position of the zero or one indicate the exponent of two added to the value, making binary a base 2 number system

The first value in a binary string is multiplied by 20  (1)
The second value in a binary string is multiplied by 21 (2)
The third value in a binary string is multiplied by 22 (4)
The forth value in a binary string is multiplied by 23 (8), and so on.

In this way, the binary number of 1011 is:

           • 20 + • 21 + 0 • 22 + 1 • 23 = 11 in base 10 numbers which we commonly use.
