The Binary Code is a code of representing more complex data from a sequence comprised of two components. In computing, these two states are symbolized by zeroes ( 0 ) and ones ( 1 ).

Binary code works by applying exponentially increasing numerical values to each item in the sequence. A binary sequence will typically have a uniform delimit, which in computer technology is typically every eight. A sequence of eight zeroes and ones is known as a byte, and each item in a byte is known as a bit. One byte can represent one of up to 256 states (ranging from 0 to 255) which are typically equated to characters on the ASCII (American Standard Code for Information Interchange) table.
