I wrote this guide for my friend but I'm sharing it now.

Here's a much easier way to do binary instead of my last confusing as hell way.

- You don't need to know this but just if you are questioning: 8 bits of data = 1 byte of information, those 1s and 0s, if arranged correctly can spell a word, write a sentence, do math all of that. This is what the computer's processor computes.
- I will go from Right to Left this time and I will go over the very basic features. First of all, you should always setup your first byte of data with 01000000, this says that the data is going to be in ASCII (I think?).
- The third zero from the left is the lower case/upper case switch. If you want an upper case A it would look like: 01000001, lower case is 01100001
- Now moving from right to left. First bit is +1, second +2, third +4, fourth +8, fifth +16
- Now, to find the letter in the decimal simply count which number the letter is in the alphabet, Example: A = 1, B = 2, C = 3 etc..
- Now for the letter B, it's the second letter and upper case. So this means we'd put a 1 in second column from the right because B is the second letter once again. Outcome should be: 01000010
- Now to write a word simply put all the numbers together!

|0|1|0/1|(+16)|(+8)|(+4)|(+2)|(+1)|

And if the letter was A, first letter of the alphabet I would just do:

Code:

```
| 0 | 1 | 0 | 0 | 0 | 0 | 0 | 1 | = 01000001
+0 +0 +0 +0 +1 = 1 -> A
```

Another table:

Code:

```
| 0 | 1 | 0 | 0 | 0 | 0 | 0 | 0 | = 01000000
+16 +8 +4 +2 +1
```

Another Example (Letter C): C = 3

Code:

```
| 0 | 1 | 1 | 0 | 0 | 0 | 1 | 1 | = 01100011
+16 +8 +4 +2 +1
```

BTW space bar is 00100000
