Binary is the numeric system of computers. Computers are so dumb they only understand 0s and 1s. Binary numbers have a base of 2.

Binary Coded Decimal or BCD is a set of binary encodings for decimal numbers used in early digital computers. In BCD, a binary sequence is used to represent each digit of the source decimal number
