This is made to help you understand the basics of binary. If you are a beginner redstoner 1st you should understand the logic and gates then you should learn Binary, after that is using binary.Binary is not just used in redstone but also used in modern sciences. To start off Binary is a number coding using 0 and 1, based on a scale of a number times 2 for example the number scale starts with: 1,2,4,8,16,32,64,128 and so on. Now lets say you have 2 torches. 1 torch is off and the other torch is on. In binary 1 = on and 0 = off. Now with this information lets make a number in binary. 1st we have our scale then we have our binary digits (0).
1.2.4.8.16.32.64.128.256.512....
0.0.0.0..0..0...0....0....0.....0....All the 0s are place directly below the numbers (when posted it may look different)
Lets make the number 17 in binary, now on that scale what numbers would we add to make 17. We would use 1 and 16. this means that 17 in binary means 100010...and 0 goes on forever after that last 1. You can see all this in the picture above. Now one last time lets make the number 67 in binary, well the numbers we would need are 1,2 and 64. using the number scale of 1.2.4.8.16.32.64.128.256 and so on we can see that 67 = 1100001.(0 is basically the number that is used to demonstrate, that the number (above) is not used. If you have any questions, remember to post them in the comment section. here is a link to this map download so learning is easier, just copy paste this into your search box and click enter.

it's ok, it happens to all of us ;) Try going on this server IP: Jessassin.net the people on it can help you out a lot with binary or other things. they are all the redstone experts
Ty
dude this has nothing to do whit redstone.

if the redstone torche is on well then the redstone torche is just on.
same with off jus switch lever on off on off. and what im making is a redstone device and logic gates map what has nothing to do whit this nonsens.

Well now thats where your wrong. Binary is used to decode stuff, like real logic. A binary decoder can be used so when you want to calculate something it turns the inputed number into binary so typical adders can read it. adders consist or xor latches which im not going to explain here, anyway lets say you wanted to add a number. The number would have to be inputed using binary and the output would be binary. So if you want to add 5 (101) and 7 (111) the output would be 0011 (12 in binary) Ps, this is how u spell torch.
yeah oke but imean what does this to do with my map.
my map is to help peoples with there redstone probs.
not nerdy stuff like calculating with redstone in a sandbox game...

Lol i respect that, i did not see it was for problems. But if u ever want to get more advanced Binary is the next step after logic ;)
