### Translate this binary number (10010101) into a base 10 number

• A.

4

• B.

255

• C.

149

• D.

128

C. 149
Explanation
To translate a binary number into a base 10 number, we need to understand the place value system of binary numbers. In binary, each digit represents a power of 2, starting from the rightmost digit as 2^0, then 2^1, 2^2, and so on. The given binary number (10010101) can be calculated as follows: 1 * 2^7 + 0 * 2^6 + 0 * 2^5 + 1 * 2^4 + 0 * 2^3 + 1 * 2^2 + 0 * 2^1 + 1 * 2^0 = 128 + 0 + 0 + 16 + 0 + 4 + 0 + 1 = 149. Therefore, the correct answer is 149.

These three technologies together facilitated the rapid spread of information, coordination of protests, and mobilization of large numbers of people, making the Arab Spring possible.
