**1. **Why is
an understanding of Boolean algebra important to computer scientists?

Boolean algebra is an algebra for the manipulation of objects that can take on only two values, typically true and false or 0 and 1 and also it can be any pair of values.

Boolean algebra is very important to computer scientists because computers are made as a collection of switches that are 0 or 1. Boolean algebra is a very natural way to represent digital information.
