In ordinary algebra, there are many possible constants, including all integers (1, 2, 3, etc.)

(2) d.

and all fractions (1/2, 1/4, etc.). For example, the decimal number 6 always means the

same thing: a quantity of six, a constant, a fixed meaning. In Boolean algebra, which

utilizes the binary numbering system, there are only two possible constants, 0 and 1.

In Boolean algebra, the two possible constants are
