What if we were to decide that a 0-bit represented **FALSE** and a 1-bit represented **TRUE**?

This would allow us to manipulate bits using **Boolean operations** (named for a guy named George Boole who worked a branch of math called logic in the 1800s).

There are four basic Boolean operations that are used to manipulate bits:

AND | Dr. Rita is short AND Dr. Rita is a nerd | Binary Operator |

OR | Dr. Rita is short OR Dr. Rita is a nerd | Binary Operator |

XOR | Either Dr. Rita is short OR Dr. Rita is a nerd but not both | Binary Operator |

NOT | NOT (Dr. Rita is short) | Unary Operator |

**Gate:** A device that produces the output of a Boolean operation

Let's complete these truth tables together!
