I've fine quite a but of reading on how some golds convert whole numbers to binary numbers to get the "next" draw number. The only issue is no one ever explains what they do, how try do it and more importantly does it benefit them.

Does se anyone use binary?  If so, please explain the pros and cons

thanks

Here's what I found for you...........

Binary Number System

Computers use binary digits. And some  puzzles can be solved using binary numbers.

A Binary Number is made up of only 0s and 1s.

 110100 Example of a Binary Number

There is no 2,3,4,5,6,7,8 or 9 in Binary!

How do we Count using Binary?

 Binary 0 We start at 0 1 Then 1 ??? But then there is no symbol for 2 ... what do we do?

 Decimal Well how do we count in Decimal? 0 Start at 0 ... Count 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8, and then... 9 This is the last digit in Decimal 10 So we start back at 0 again, but add 1 on the left

The same thing  is done in binary ...

 Binary 0 Start at 0 • 1 Then 1 •• 10 Now start back at 0 again, but add 1 on the left ••• 11 1 more •••• ??? But NOW what ... ?

 Decimal What happens in  Decimal ... ? 99 When we run out of digits,  we ... 100 ... start back at 0 again, but add 1 on the left

And that is what we do in binary ...

 Binary 0 Start at 0 • 1 Then 1 •• 10 Start back at 0 again, but add 1 on the left ••• 11 •••• 100 start back at 0 again, and add one to the number on the left... ... but that number is already at 1 so it also goes back to 0 ... ... and 1 is added to the next position on the left ••••• 101 •••••• 110 ••••••• 111 •••••••• 1000 Start back at 0 again (for all 3 digits), add 1 on the left ••••••••• 1001 And so on!

See how it is done in this little demonstration (press play):

Decimal vs Binary

Here are some equivalent values:

 Decimal: Binary: 0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 0 1 10 11 100 101 110 111 1000 1001 1010 1011 1100 1101 1110 1111

Here are some larger equivalent values:

 Decimal: Binary: 20 25 30 40 50 100 200 500 10100 11001 11110 101000 110010 1100100 11001000 111110100

"Binary is as easy as 1, 10, 11."

Position

In the Decimal System there are the Units, Tens, Hundreds, etc

In Binary, there are Units, Twos, Fours, etc, like this:

 This is  1×8 + 1×4 + 0×2 + 1 + 1×(1/2) + 0×(1/4) + 1×(1/8) = 13.625 in Decimal

Numbers can be placed to the left               or right of the point, to indicate values greater than one   or less than one.

 10.1 The number to the left of the  point is a whole number (10 for example) As we move further left, every number place gets 2 times bigger. The first digit on the right means halves (1/2). As we move further right, every number place gets 2 times smaller (half as big).

Example: 10.1

• The "10" means 2 in decimal,
• The ".1" means half,
• So "10.1" in binary is 2.5 in decimal

You can do conversions at Binary to Decimal to Hexadecimal Converter.

Words

The word binary comes from "Bi-" meaning two. We see "bi-"  in words such as "bicycle" (two wheels) or "binocular" (two eyes).

 When you say a  binary number, pronounce each digit (example, the binary number "101" is spoken as "one zero one", or sometimes "one-oh-one"). This way  people don't get confused with the decimal number.

A single binary digit (like "0" or "1") is called a "bit". For example 11010 is five bits long.

The word bit is made up from the words "binary digit"

How to Show that a Number is Binary

To show that a number is a binary number, follow it with a little 2 like this: 1012

This way people won't think it is the decimal number "101" (one hundred and one).

Examples

Example: What is 11112 in Decimal?

• The "1" on the left is in the "2×2×2" position, so that means  1×2×2×2 (=8)
• The next "1"  is in the "2×2" position, so that means  1×2×2 (=4)
• The next "1"  is in the "2" position, so that means  1×2 (=2)
• The last "1"  is in the units position, so that means  1
• Answer: 1111 = 8+4+2+1  = 15 in Decimal

Example: What is 10012 in Decimal?

• The "1" on the left is in the "2×2×2" position, so that means  1×2×2×2 (=8)
• The "0"  is in the "2×2" position, so that means  0×2×2 (=0)
• The next "0"  is in the "2" position, so that means  0×2 (=0)
• The last "1"  is in the units position, so that means  1
• Answer: 1001 = 8+0+0+1 = 9 in Decimal

Example: What is 1.12 in Decimal?

• The "1" on the left side is in the units position, so that means 1.
• The 1 on the right side is in the "halves" position, so that means 1×(1/2)
• So, 1.1 is "1 and 1 half" = 1.5 in Decimal

Example: What is 10.112 in Decimal?

• The "1" is in the "2" position, so that means  1×2 (=2)
• The "0"  is in the units position, so that means  0
• The "1" on the right of the point  is in the "halves" position, so that means 1×(1/2)
• The last "1" on the right side is in the "quarters" position, so that means 1×(1/4)
• So, 10.11 is 2+0+1/2+1/4 = 2.75 in Decimal

Thanks for the lesson or I should say refresher course.  I'm an Electronics/Electrical Engineer   How does this play into the lotto numbers?  If at any time a PM is better than a public pits feel free

Several years ago I studied binary in the P5 game.  I did not find anything upon which to hang my hat .

If you have any suggestions I would gladly spend some time researching the results.  I found binary intriguing but devoid of any meaning lotto-wise.

Good Morning Jani,

Just wanted to say that was an excellent presentation and explanation

of the Binary Code System.

Have a Blessed Day !

Sometimes it's extremely difficult if not practically impossible to get people to disregard the smoke and mirrors.  Instead, they seem to enjoy the ride down the proverbial Garden Path....... helpless to extricate themselves from being totally deceived by known forces in their midst who would argue that they have come here for the sole purpose of helping people.......str8ca\$hhomie

You will find functions in programming languages, but also in the Windows calculator and in spreadsheets. Binary is used for IP-numbers. Decimal and hex are shorter. We don't use binary for calculations, we learned decimal. As numbers are getting bigger and calculations longer, we use calculators and computers.

When I was at school, we did not learn binary and matrix calculations, we used regular algebra. They invented the computer, so people had to learn binary because a computer is doing with ones and zeros. Look for Neumann. One digit is called bit and eight bits are called byte.

Binary may help in analysis, but then you are limited, since between numbers, we also have Deltas (difference between current and previous numbers) and the delta difference (difference between current and previous delta between numbers).   THus,   TERNARY provides more possibilities in examining the numbers, and gives a lot more to play with, or eliminate from.

The only benefit is if your testing for genuine randomness. I suppose you could use it as a dart board but whole numbers work just as well for that.

If your intentions are you fill an array and randomly select from past drawings --its very slow and has to recollect them back into whole numbers.

there are eight bits to a bite.

In electronic circuits, 0 and 1 are represented by a voltage level. In early computers, it was usually +5 volts or +12 volts to represent a binary 1 and either 0 volts or -12 volts to represent a binary 0.

Binary only works in two dimensions.
