ASCII is like a secret code that computers use to talk to each other. Instead of using words, computers use numbers to represent letters, numbers, and symbols. For example, the letter “A” is represented by the number 65, the number “0” is represented by the number 48, and the exclamation mark “!” is represented by the number 33.
Using ASCII, computers can send messages and share information with each other, even if they are made by different companies or speak different languages. It’s like having a special language that all computers can understand, like a secret code that helps them communicate with each other.
