Translating Binary to Text Contents 1. Introduction 2. The Binary System 3. Converting Binary to ASCII (Text) Introduction: WeYve all seen binary code. We°ve come to think of them as a bunch of ones and zeroes in long strings° 010010101010101001101011 But these ones and zeroes can also represent decimal numbers. First off, I will show you how to read these numbers as the decimal numbers we nre used to in our daily life. Then, I will show you how to use those numbers and your keypad to translate them into text. Note that your computer doesn°t use the decimal system, so technically, when it converts binary to text, it doesnzt go through the process I will show you. This is just a divertive way of explaining you how the binary system works. The Binary System: Here°s a simple example of binary: 10101 Let Es think of the example above as empty slots: _ _ _ _ _ First off, you read binary from right-to-left. It 's just the way it Es designed. The first slot from the right represents a value of one, the second from the right a value of two, the third from the right a value of four, the fourth from the right a value of eight, the fifth from the right a value of sixteen, and the cycle continues by multiples of 2. This will never change.

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
