Finding value in checkbox


I feel REALLY dumb for asking this, but what is the actual value of a checked checkbox (or an unchecked one)? I have to make a Hotlist checkbox field be checked if the Emergency field (another checkbox) is checked on. (But not the other way around.)

I hate to give up on using checkboxes just because I can't remember what the actual checked value is. I've tried 1 and y--no luck.  Haven't tried "yes" yet.  FileMaker won't let me put in y.  Is it 0 (zero) for unchecked and 1 for checked? Or "y" for checked and "n" for unchecked? Meh.
