How to Read Binary Operation Tables - The word binary operation is derived by the word 'bi' which means two i.e. something that is composed of two pieces. A binary operation is a simple rule that combines two values to create a new one. One of the most widely known operations in binary are the ones that we learn in elementary level such as: Addition, subtraction, division and multiplication which are applied on various different numbers. You can see that the table in the above case shows relationship that exists between two identities. However, binary relations don't work like this exactly. In multiplication, 1 is the identity element which means that the any number or variable multiplied by 1 will remain the same and unchanged. Every binary table has an identity element. These worksheets help students learn how to interpret and even create their own binary operation tables.
