A decimal number system is positional numeral system employing 10 as the base. It uses 10 different symbols 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8 and 9.
It is the standard system for denoting integer and non-integer numbers. Decimal number refers to the notation of number in the decimal system (base-10), which contains a decimal separator. In this system the number 423.15 represents the sum ( 4 × 102 ) + ( 2 × 101 ) + ( 3 × 100 ) + ( 1 × 10−1 ) + ( 5 × 10−2 ). Humans mostly use the decimal system.
ASCII (American Standard Code for Information Interchange) is a character encoding standard for electronic communication. ASCII codes represent text in computers. The standard ASCII character set uses 7 bits for each character. There are also several larger 8 bits character sets. These sets have 128 additional characters, which are used to represent non-English chars, graphics or mathematics symbols. Most of the modern character-encoding schemes are based on ASCII standard but they support a lot of additional characters. For instance, in UTF-8 (dominant encoding on the WWW) the first 128 Unicode code points are the ASCII characters. It means that any ASCII text is also a UTF-8 text.
