What do the hardware and software form together?

Hardware performs the computations, software is a set of

instructions we use to tell the hardware what we want it to do.

Basically hardware is what carries out the work, and software is

what we use, and what we program into it.

how does hardware work?

If the Q. is what is the HW-SW interface which enables us to use

both of them as a system, i would say the instruction set.

The Instruction set is the HW-SW interface , instructions are

"signals" for the hardware and at the same time appear as

instructions to the programmer.This is the bridge between and us

the machine.
