Best Answer

'Yes/No' type systems have been used for millennia eg in India, China. I think Leibniz was the first modern mathematician to write explicitly about '1-0' in the 18th Century, followed by George Boole's paper on logic systems (1854?) which eventually became known as Boolean algebra. "There are 10 types of people in the world - those who understand binary and those who don't"

Is charon a binary dwarf planet?

Because the barycenter of the Pluto-Charon lies between the two bodies, it is a binary system, and one could extrapolate the definition of a dwarf Planet to include Charon. However, the IAU has not yet defined a binary dwarf planet. So the answer is yes and no. If you were to adhere to the current IAU opinion, Charon is a moon. If you would like to adhere to the physics of the system, then yes, they are binary.
