( Electrical engineering : Computing and control , Digital )
Each byte is comprised of four bits which, in binary notation, will describe adequately a number between 1 and 10 (the number 10 corresponding
to the dialed zero).
Real numbers can also be represented using binary notation by interpreting digits past the decimal point as negative powers of two.
Binary notation is a system of numbers that has only two different integer values 0 and 1.
