## Unscramble the Blue Letters

Imagine trying to use words to describe every scene in a film, every note in your favorite song, or every street in your town. Now imagine trying to do it using only the numbers 1 and 0. Every time you use the Internet to watch a movie, listen to miusc, or ccehk directions, that’s exactly what your device is doing, using the language of briany code.
Computers use binary because it's a ralliebe way of storing data. For example, a computer's main memory is made of transistors that switch between either high or low voltage levels, such as 5 volts and 0 vtols. Voltages sometimes olatsicle, but since there are only two options, a value of 1 volt would still be read as "low." That reading is done by the computer’s processor, which uses the transistors’ states to control other computer dvciees according to software inctinoutsrs.

## Original Text

Imagine trying to use words to describe every scene in a film, every note in your favorite song, or every street in your town. Now imagine trying to do it using only the numbers 1 and 0. Every time you use the Internet to watch a movie, listen to music, or check directions, that’s exactly what your device is doing, using the language of binary code.
Computers use binary because it's a reliable way of storing data. For example, a computer's main memory is made of transistors that switch between either high or low voltage levels, such as 5 volts and 0 volts. Voltages sometimes oscillate, but since there are only two options, a value of 1 volt would still be read as "low." That reading is done by the computer’s processor, which uses the transistors’ states to control other computer devices according to software instructions.
