# Binary numeral system joke

Convert Binary dot com offer free online tools to convert numbers and translate text to binary.

## The Joke

“There are only 10 types of people in the world: Those who understand binary, and those who don’t”.

## THE FUN IN THE JOKE

The pun derives from an ambiguous meaning: the expression 10 in the binary numeral system is equal to the decimal number two (you can check with the Decimal to binary converter on ConvertBinary.com).

In other words,: there are 10 types of people in this world, those who understand binary (1) and those who don’t (10).

The expression **10** IS NOT TEN, but 1 and 0, which in binary is… TWO.
