I once created a computer game in binary code in "Basic" on the Spectrum 48k - I was only 9 or 10 years old then - I don't remember much about programming "Basic" or programming in binary these days.

It's a skill which I wish I had kept up.

Ok so you have an ASCII table

https://www.asciitable.com/

ASCII - American Standard Code for Information Interchange

This is what's used as the template for assigning letters and numbers to Binary.

If you like it's the alphabet of binary.

You see on the left hand side it says "DEC" and the reference for "A" is "65"

If you wanted to say**Hello** in decimal it would be

**72 101 108 108 111**

So Hello in Binary is

Example

**01001000** **01100101** **01101100** **01101100** **01101111**

Explanation of

**01001000**

**01001000 represents H (decimal equivalen 72)**

You will notice each binary letter is 8 digits

You work it out from right to left

It's stored in BITS - and it goes to the power of 2, so starting right,

1st number=1, 2nd number =2, 3rd number=4, 4th number =8

(1*2=**1**) (2*2=**4**) (4*2=**8**) (8*2=**16**) (16*2=**32**) (32*2=**64**) (64*2=**128**)

It finishes off like this

128 64 32 16 8 4 2 1

For H

The bits turned on and off are represented by 1's and 0's

For H bits 128, 32, 16, 4, 2 and 1 are all switched off

BITS 64, 8 are turned on

Therefore the Binary translation is now**64+8= ****72**
