## Number system

Number System | Base | Used Digits |
---|---|---|

Binary | 2 | 0, 1 |

Octal | 8 | 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7 |

Decimal | 10 | 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9 |

Hexadecimal | 16 | 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, A, B, C, D, E, F |

Of all these number systems, decimal and binary are the most important for bit manipulation.

In the next lesson, we will discuss these two number systems in detail.
