Mathlete Binary League

If you wear this shirt, someone is likely to ask you, “What is the meaning of the four numbers underneath ‘Binary League’?” You will seem smart if you know the answer. These four 8-digit base-2 numbers are “01101101 01100001 01110100 01101000.” These binary numbers translate to the following four base-10 numbers: “109 97 116 104.” In ANSI characters, which are used by computers to represent characters that are stored as numbers, the four base-10 numbers translate to the word “math.” Thus, the bottom of the shirt says, “Binary League math.”
