Introduction to Number Systems and Binary

Watch this lecture on binary numbers, which are used to represent numbers in computer memory. In fact, all types of information, not just numbers, but characters as well, are stored in memory using binary bits (that is, digits) of 0 and 1. We still write numbers in our programs using decimal numbers, but the interpreter converts them to binary when it interprets them for execution as part of a machine language instruction (the interpreter interprets the Java statement to equivalent machine language statements).
