Base (numbers)
1. The number that is going to be raised to a power.

Example: in 82, 8 is the base

2. How many numbers used in a number system

The decimal number system that we use every day has 10 digits {0,1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9} and so it is Base-10.

Binary digits can only be 0 or 1, so they are Base-2.
