"There are 10 different kinds of people in this world --those who understand binary and those who don't."

Question:Ok what does this mean?




Answers:
Binary to decimal conversion is like this:
0=0
1=1
10=2
11=3
100=4
101=5
110=6
111=7
1000=8
1001=9
1010=10
1011=11
1100=12
1101=13
1110=14
1111=15
Etc.
So as said by the previous poster the statement would normally read "there are 2 kinds of people..." but in binary 2=10 therefore "there are 10 kinds of people..."
It's a joke. Binary is the language code of 1's and 0's. The joke would not have made sense if it said "2 people in the world" because 2 is not a valid number in binary. Hilarious.
What a funny statement. I loved it!
