uses two options, 0 and 1.

A positional system of numeration that uses binary digits and a radix of 2.

Two neighboring stars that revolve around their common center of gravity; the fainter of the two stars is called the companion.

Number system with 2 as the base.

A numbering system based on two numbers, zero and one.

A system of two objects orbiting around a common center. The objects may be stars or black holes or a star and a black hole.

a star system with two stars that orbit around each other

Two stars that revolve around a common centre of mass. Most star systems are binary. Binary systems are important because they allow astronomers to determine the masses of stars.

A mathematical system containing only two digits (0 and 1) which allows a digital computer to read and process input voltage signals.

Two stars that revolve around each other. Binary systems are quite common.

Consists of two stars orbiting a common centre of mass.

A number system with a base of two. Each digit has only two possible states 0 or 1, or on and off. Binary numbers are the basis for computer languages.

programming: A number system composed entirely of zeroes and ones. This is the base-2 system, where the equation 10 + 10 = 100 is the equivalent of our (base-10) 2 + 2 = 4.

Number notation system which uses only the digits 0 and 1.

Number system in which there are only two possible digit values, 0 and 1.

A binary system is an astronomic term referring to two objects in space (usually stars, but also planets, galaxies or asteroids) which are so close that their gravitational interaction causes them to orbit about a common center of mass. Some definitions (e.g. that of double planet, but not that of binary star) require that this center of mass is not located within the interior of either object. A multiple system is like a binary system but consists of three or more objects.
