Expressing Given Values In Binary


Given X = B6 E1 16 and Y = 1C 7D16; where X & Y are 16 bit numbers.

(i) Express the value of X and Y in binary.
(ii) What will be the results of the logical computation NOT ( X OR Y ).
(iii) Suppose X is represented using two’s complement representation. Calculate its decimal value.
(iv) If the computer registers are 16-bit wide, what will be the decimal value after multiplying X by 2 (Hex)?
(v) Prove that right shift operation performed on Y consecutively for four (4) times will be equivalent to dividing X by 16, ignoring any fractions.


The question belongs to Computer Science and it discusses about expressing the given values of X and Y in binary.

    Hello Allison,I love the 2nd image that you did! I also, had never heard of SumoPaint, is something that I will have to exolpre a bit! I understand completely the 52 (or so) youtube videos that you probably watched. Sometimes they have what you want, sometimes they don't! However, it is always satisfying when you are able to produce something that you have taught yourself. Great job!Debra 0 likes
