  one
  1
  
      The lowest positive integer and the basis for
     counting.  Multiplication by one is an identity operator and,
     since one is its own reciprocal, so is division by one.  One is
     the result of dividing any non-zero number by itself.  One raised
     to any power is one and raising to the power one is also an
     identity operator.
  
      The largest digit in binary, related to the value true
     in Boolean algebra.  Digital computers typically represent one
     by a high voltage and zero by a low voltage.
