Sometimes a quantity that is to be represented in a computer has only two possible values, either true or false. An example of such a true/false quantity in the kitchen scales is the one that represents whether the scales are to weigh in metric or in imperial measure. The value of this true/false quantity is given by the true/false response to the statement ‘the most recent push of the input button made the measuring system metric’.
