Since a binary digit has only two possible values, each digit bears less information than in decimal, where each digit can have ten different values.

Digital electronics devices handle numbers in the form of the binary system. That is, the numbers are represented in base-2, with only two digits. That way, when a digit comes along, it's much easier for the electronic device to decide what digit it is.

A binary numeral system is system for representing numbers in which a radix of 2 is used - so that each digit in a binary numeral may have either of two different values.

Align the two numbers as you would in decimal subtraction. Append leading zeros if necessary to represent both numbers with the same number of digits Apply two's complement to the second term Add the complemented number to the first term. The sum in the previous step should have one more digit than you started with.

110.101 is already a decimal number. Unless that is intended to be two binary numbers with a decimal point between them for some reason. (decimal points are not used to represent fractional numbers in the binary system).

A single binary digit can represent one of two states: 1 or 0. These are often renamed as "true and false" or "on and off."

1 and 0 are the only two binary digits. In different scenarios they can represent True and False, On and Off, Yes and No, Open and Closed or any such logical pairs.

Binary is simpler than decimal. And it is easy to represent binary numbers with signals, since only two states are required. For example, a low voltage state might represent a zero, and a high voltage state might represent a one. Or vice versa.

They are the best numbers for computers to use. In simple terms, as computers are electronic they use electronic currents, which can be on or off, like a light switch. 1 and 0, which are the only digits binary has, can be used to represent these two states. Binary forms the basis to all computer memory and operations.
