Computer Science: Boolean Algebra

floating point – In floating point arithmetic, the position of the decimal point does not depend on the relative position of the digits in the numbers (as in fixed point arithmetic), since the two parts of the floating point number determine the absolute value of the number.
Method call – A commands form Same object.Some Message() is a method call.
OR Gate – a logic circuit whose output is 1 when at least one input is 1.
src="url" – indicates the location of the object
HTML – HyperText Markup Language. This is a file format, based on SGML, for hypertext documents on the Internet.
It is very simple and allows for the embedding of images, sounds, video streams, form fields and simple text
formatting. References to other objects are embedded using URLs.

What are the 3 multimedia features – Interactivity (user control), hyperlinking (allows for "jumping" around sections, computer based delivery
Machine Language – Computer Programs written in binary
internet backbone – main high-speed routes for internet data traffic
transaction file – a temporary file holding data that is later used for processing, generally to update a master file
software – Set of instructions that tells the hardware what to do. It is what guides the hardware and tells it how to accomplish each task.
