I am learning a little more about PHP instead of the basic formatting, etc. One of the questions I have is that with the math part of PHP I can do some rather interesting things with math.
I am also remembering computers understand binary, which is the purest format for all computer languages, but because us as a human species have such a short lifespan we tend to write in everything but binary because to write something in binary would take quite some time, and not worth it.
But that being said, changing a number from something we can understand which would be 124.2 to the binary version which would be 00110001 00110010 00110100 00101110 00110010, would it be more adventageous to do so?
I'm only asking, because if I want code to run faster, since it will be doing averages, etc... I am wondering if translating it to binary before doing the math would make the program faster, or am I thinking too logically, and today's computers don't really care too much about this any more?
