Bits and Bytes

All the information in a computer is stored as a series of binary numbers (ones and zeros).

One digit (a one or a zero) is called a

0 1 0 0 1 0

Four bits are called a
nibble, though nobody uses this term anymore:

0100 1101 1010 1111

We call a group of eight bits a

01011101 11101011 01010101
