This task tests your understanding of binary, and its uses. Binary is described in Maths as a number base.
If you missed the lesson, or would like to remind yourself, here is a link to videos on binary:
The following links might help you with this task - you will have seen them in the lesson:
binary - an interactive page to help you investigate binary numbers (click on the digits to change them)
abacus - if you find the 1s and 0s confusing, try using the abacus (select base 2 at the top)
binary flags - see how binary can help us to combine values
designing a character - see how binary values can be used when designing fonts
If you are interested in using different number systems, you might also want to try:
hexadecimal - an interactive page to help you investigate hexadecimal numbers (click on the digits to change them)
NB. All links on this page open in a separate tab or window so that you can have the two pages open at the same time.
Use the binary page to help you answer the following questions:
