Explanation:
is more widely used:

"Step 2. Count the Short Flashes

The long flashes are followed by shorter flashes; each short flash lasts about one-fifth of a second. These short flashes represent the digit in the ones column. Again, there can be 1 to 10 flashes, which represent the digits 0 through 9. For example, one short flash represents the digit 0 in the ones column, two short flashes represent the digit 1 in the ones column, and 10 short flashes represent a 9 in the ones column."

"3.2.1.2 Counting in Binary

First, you have to understand what happens in decimal as you count higher. You have ten possible values for each digit. When, in the ones column, you reach the number 9, and there are no more values to count in the ones column, what happens? The ones column is set back to 0, and the tens column is set to its next value, 1."
