when 1+1 becomes 10, we're not talking about decimal here but rather binary. binary, is the use of 2 number, 0 and 1. It makes things simple for a machine but a lot of headache for the programmer. That's why Matrix the movie did use a sequence of 0's and 1's to deliver to the audience that the movie is in an advanced computer era.
we did try to add, subtract, divide and multiply the binary. And it's a little bit confusing, but after all the hustles, learning it makes my life a little bit simple.
Students should make their life simple, I mean, the teachers goal is to make it complicated for us to learn, but I guess, our way of looking at it defines what we had learn. If we can make it more simple, then maybe we had learn something.
