Now what is this binary encoding?

**In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.**

10000000000 = 1024 ( binary )

0010000100000011 = 1024 ( fibonacci )

I've just answered my stupid question, never mind

Hi; that's great. But unfortunately, I do not understand what you mean by CGPA and A1. I though marking was out of 500.

Offline

CBSE has actually changed itself a lot

CGPA means Cumulative Grade Point Average. A1 is a grade
