Binary Code – A system for coding data made up of two states (or symbols).
For this example we can have:
25 = 2 × 2 × 2 × 2 × 2 = 32 possible binary strings.
Cryptology – The study of how to make and break secret codes.
Three Types of Cryptosystems:
A widely used frequency table for letters in normal English usage.
Here are some other helpful tips to know when solving cryptograms:
AND conjunction ^, means to find the results with all of the words.
OR disjunction v, means to find the results of at least one of the words.
NOT ¬,means to find the results without the words.
