Re: Trick
I will tell you the answer and the solution, but in a spoiler. If you want to solve this yourself, DO NOT CLICK!
 Spoiler:
 In the most basic terms I can put it, this is binary code. In order to solve the puzzle, you must convert the code into letters. To achieve that, you first must convert each section into a decimal number:
There are 5 numbers in each binary section for this trick, you start from the right hand side. It always starts off as 1, and after that it is in increments of that number squared. So the next four values are 2, 4, 8 and 16 respectively:
16 8 4 2 1
0 1 1 1 0
Following me?
Now, ignore the zeros... so we are left with three 1s. Now add their values... which would be 8 + 4 + 2 = 14. So the number 14 is your answer for 01110... but wait, you said I have to convert this into letters? Well that's simple... the answer is 14, so what is the 14th letter in the alphabet? Yes, that's right... it is n.
Let's do the rest! Remember to use the values for each of the sections, starting from the right hand side:
01001 = 8 + 1 = 9 = i
00011 = 2 + 1 = 3 = c
00101 = 4 + 1 = 5 = e
10111 = 16 + 4 + 2 + 1 = 23 = w
01111 = 8 + 4 + 2 + 1 = 15 = o
10010 = 16 + 2 = 18 = r
01011 = 8 + 2 + 1 = 11 = k
The answer is: Nice work.

Well, this kinda stuff is in my field. Give me a riddle on... say, anything chemistry related, and I'll be stumped.

Re: Trick
I don'tz like math but also riddles. I would had thought, the binary means a kind of "pictue or so as I read the topic at first.
