Decimal number system also known as Base 10 numbering system because it is based on 10 ranging symbols: 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8 and 9.

Decimal number system is also one of the ancient numeral system, whose roots are in Hindu-Arabic numeral system.
Binary is the simplest type of number system that makes use of only two numbers 1 and 0. By using these numbers, arithmetical problems can be solved by machines because in digital instruments, a transistor is used in two states. Those two states can be represented by 0 (False) and 1 (True). That’s why this number system is the most chosen in modern computer engineering, networking and communication technologies by specialists, and other professionals.
