Theres 5 times more "digits" the amount of numbers you can make with each system is the same.

@Dairyqueenemployee What about 2?

10 in binary. Any number in base 10 can be made in base 2

@Dairyqueenemployee 10 in binary is 0101......

Yes but i was telling you what 2 is in binary.

@Robisrael Yes but i was telling you what 2 is in binary.

2 does not exist in binary. If you were to say it to a computer, it would return an error.

@Dairyqueenemployee 2 does not exist in binary. If you were to say it to a computer, it would return an error.

Because 10 = 2 in 2 digit binary. Are you being purposely obtuse? I can i put 10 and it will recognise that as a 2

Also btw ten in binary isnt 0101 its 1010

@Dairyqueenemployee Yes actually

Um, Actually: No! Less digits. but not less numbers.

They're the same numbers.

It's like saying "there's more words in font size 16 than font size 10"

There are 10 types of people in this world, those who understand binary and those who don't.

Number of binary numbers: infinite

Number of decimal numbers: infinite

Infinity*5=infinity

So yeah you're right.

Digits, 4.5 times maybe. Numbers, not so much.

@Crazymotherfuker Digits, 4.5 times maybe. Numbers, not so much.

I would love to know where you came up with the 4.5 figure
