Ones and zeros communicate in a language of commands for computers through perpetual addition.

Computers are such an integral part of the developed world that in the year 1999, widespread fear of systems failing at midnight on January 1, 2000, sent millions of people in a panic to purchase water, generators, and canned food."
"The electrical grids, water systems and banking systems were all run through computer programs powered by commands of addition."
"These commands were executed through the addition of numbers in binary code, which is a system where all real numbers are represented by ones and zeros."
"Only the two numbers are used because a computer is run on an electrical circuit that can truly only understand one of two states, on and off."
The speed of this communication is processed at a much higher rate when dealing with only the addition of zeros and ones.
The ones and zeros are summed through addition in a linear algebraic formula.
"When the addition is executed, the on and off or yes and no command is sent to a computer's communication center."
"Binary's partner in computer processing is the hexadecimal number system, which also uses addition to calculate a sequence, but uses the digits zero through nine and the letters A through F."
"The combination of binary and hexadecimal numeric systems creates bits and bytes, which use addition to create storage units in computer language. "
"The addition of bits and bytes, with one byte equal to eight bits, will increase the processing speed in a computer."
Tasks are performed as binary math uses addition to send a set of specific instructions to a computer.
"The style, color, and size of font, for example, is determined through binary addition; which then is communicated to other computer mark up devices, such as html."
Binary math is not possible without understanding the concept of addition.
"A more in depth example of how this code is determined through addition can be shown through how the word “AT” is formed."
"A sequence of zeros and ones are assigned to each letter of the alphabet; the letter “A” in PC's and Mac's is O1000001 and “T” is 01010100."
"In binary code, the word “AT” would be O100000101010100, as the computer would use addition to quickly sum up the value of all those ones and zeros."
"This addition is put together through an arithmetic logic unit, or ALU."
