Introduction
The aim of this report is to identify the applications of
some of the Mathematical concepts discussed in
Computing Mathematics.

Number systems
We explore numerous number systems from different
parts of the world and then focus our attention on

We explain how binary is used in every day life, how a
transistor works and what happens if binary takes over
the world.

Then we look at an ASCII table and introduce
hexadecimals. We also look at how colour codes can be
