Are quantum bits just a form of a ternary numeral system?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

If something can be 0, 1, or both simultaneously, isn't the superposition just another equal value?

If the superposition of 0 and 1 were literally individual, combined, and possibly something different simultaneously, then it seems that a quantum bit could be an operational function of a numeral system base of 3, 4 or 5, I would guess.

Is there a way to translate quantum bits in a traditional numerological system?
