Underneath it all, binary numbers are the numerical lingua franca of all computers! In mathematics, most rational numbers can be represented as binary numbers, provided that their binary places (bits) do not exceed the computer word length (or some multiple of it).

For this puzzle, I’ve translated the first 9 integers to their equivalent values written as binary numbers. Since most human beings lock onto the first number system they ever learned (decimal or base 10 numbers), they entertain other number systems only with painful difficulty, unless paid (as computer programmers/developers) not to do so.
