<*mathematics*> 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.

<*data*> 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.
