## What is Binary?

Binary is one of two digits (0 or 1) in a binary system of notation, it’s written exactly in 1 bytes (8 bit).

## Identifying

When the first 3 bit containing 011 it’s mean Lowercase, if the first 3 bit containing 010 so it’s mean Uppercase, and when the first 4 bit containing 0011 then it’s Numeric.

## History

The modern binary number system, the basis for binary code, was invented by Gottfried Leibniz in 1689 and appears in his article *Explication de l’Arithmétique Binaire*. The full title is translated into English as the “Explanation of the binary arithmetic”, which uses only the characters 1 and 0, with some remarks on its usefulness, and on the light it throws on the ancient Chinese figures of Fu Xi.”(1703). Leibniz’s system uses 0 and 1, like the modern binary numeral system. Leibniz encountered the *I Ching* through French Jesuit Joachim Bouvet and noted with fascination how its hexagrams correspond to the binary numbers from 0 to 111111, and concluded that this mapping was evidence of major Chinese accomplishments in the sort of philosophical mathematics he admired.
