  • Do you guys understand this?
  • How does a computer encode text?Your computer translates the numeric values into visible characters. It does this is by using an encoding standard. An encoding standard is a numbering scheme that assigns each text character in a character set to a numeric value. A character set can include alphabetical characters, numbers, and other symbols.
  • No, not at all
  • Yeah, Neither
  • Detention:
  • Yes please

  • What's a Byte?
  • Yes, there is. There are things called bits and bytes. A bit is a single binary unit that can either represent a 1 or a 0
  • A Byte is a group of 8 bits working together to create a value between 0 - 255 in the decimal system
  • Detention:
  • Whats the Decimal system? Tell us more
