We know that decimal (or denary) numbers use the base ten (base-10) numbering system where each digit in a decimal number is allowed to take one

In mathematics, positive numbers (including zero) are represented as unsigned numbers. That is we do not put the +ve sign in front of them to

The Octal Numbering System is very similar in principle to the previous hexadecimal numbering system except that in Octal, a binary number is divided up into groups

The one main disadvantage of binary numbers is that the binary string equivalent of a large decimal base-10 number can be quite long. When working with

However, the numbering system used in one type of circuit may be different to that of another type of circuit, for example, the memory of

Conversion of binary to decimal (base-2 to base-10) numbers and back is an important concept to understand as the binary numbering system forms the basis

Unlike a linear, or analogue circuits, such as AC amplifiers, which process signals that are constantly changing from one value to another, for example amplitude
