technology and computing computer peripherals# What language do computers use consisting of 0s and 1s?

Likewise, what is 0s and 1s in computer?

Binary (or base-2) a numeric system that only uses two digits — 0 and 1. **Computers** operate in binary, meaning they store data and perform calculations using only zeros and ones. A single binary digit can only represent True (1) or False (0) in boolean logic.

Also question is, why do computers use 1s and 0s?

**Computers use** binary - the digits **0** and 1 - to store data. The circuits in a **computer's** processor are made up of billions of transistors . A transistor is a tiny switch that is activated by the electronic signals it receives. The digits 1 and **0** used in binary reflect the on and off states of a transistor.

The **area that holds all** of the **instructions the computer needs to start up** is called RAM. The two main categories of home and office printers are ________ and laser printers.
