• So how do you count in a binary system? How do you represent numbers like 103? In decimal (base 10) numbers, you have a 1s place, a 10s place, a 100s place, and so on, to represent value. The binary system has places or columns too. Only because you&apos;re in base 2, instead of each place being 10 times greater than the place before it, each place is only double (2 times) the one before it. video here: http://www97.intel.com/en/TheJourneyInside/ExploreTheCurriculum/EC_DigitalInformation/DILesson4
