Part IV

IV. Detail Answers.

Question 1.

a) Write the procedure to convert fractional Decimal to Binary.

Answer:

Conversion of fractional Decimal to Binary

The method of repeated multiplication by 2 has to be used to convert such kinds of decimal fractions.

The steps involved in the method of repeated multiplication by 2:

Step 1. : Multiply the decimal fraction by 2 and note the integer part. The integer part is either 0 or 1.

Step 2: Discard the integer part of the previous product. Multiply the fractional part of the previous product by 2. Repeat Step 1 until the same fraction repeats or terminates (0).

Step 3: The resulting integer part forms a sequence of 0’s and 1’s that becomes the binary equivalent of a decimal fraction.

Step 4: The final answer is to be written from the first integer part obtained till the last integer part obtained.

Integer part (last integer part obtained)

Write the integer parts from top to bottom to obtain the equivalent fractional binary number.

Hence

(0.2)_{10} = (0.00110011.,.)_{2} = (0.00110011)_{2}.

b) Convert (98.46)_{10} to Binary.

Convert (98.46)_{10} to Binary

Procedure: Conversion of an integral part:

(98)_{10} = (1100010)_{2} Conversion of fractional part:

Question 2.

Find l’s Complement and 2’s Complement for the following Decimal number.

a) -98

b) -135

Answer:

a) Conversion of (98)_{10} into binary

Conversion of (135)_{10} into binary

Question 3.

a) Add 1101010_{2} + 101101)_{2}

Answer:

a) Add 1101010_{2} + 101101_{2}

b) Subtract 1101011_{2} – 111010_{2}.

Part IV

IV. Detail Answers.

Question 1.

Explain decimal to binary conversion using Repeated Division by 2 methods.

Answer:

To convert Decimal to Binary “Repeated Division by 2” method can be used. Any Decimal number divided by 2 will leave a remainder of 0 or 1. Repeated division by 2 will leave a sequence of 0s and Is that become the binary equivalent of the decimal number.

Suppose it is required to convert the decimal number N into binary form, dividing N by 2 in the decimal system, we will obtain a quotient N1 and a remainder Rl, where R1 can have a value of either 0 or 1. The process is repeated until the quotient becomes 0 or 1. When the quotient is ‘0’ or ‘1’, it is the final remainder value. Write the final answer starting from the final remainder value obtained to the first remainder value obtained.

Example:

Convert (65)_{10} into its equivalent binary number

Question 2.

Explain decimal to binary conversion using Sum of powers of 2 methods.

Answer:

A decimal number can be converted into a binary number by adding up the powers of 2 and then adding bits as needed to obtain the total value of the number.

a) Find the largest power of 2 that is smaller than or equal to 65.

6510 > 6410

b) Set the 64’s bit to 1 and subtract 64 from the original number

65 – 64 = 1

c) 32 is greater than the remaining total.

Therefore, set the 32’s bit to 0.

d) 16 is greater than the remaining total.

Therefore, set the 16’s bit to 0

.

e) 8 is greater than the remaining total.

Therefore, set the 8’s bit to 0.

f) 4 is greater than the remaining total.

Therefore, set the 4’s bit to 0.

g) 2 is greater than the remaining total.

Therefore, set the 2’s bit to 0.

h) As the remaining value is equivalent to l’s bit, set it to 1.

1 – 1 = 0

Conversion is complete 65_{10} = (1000001)_{2}

Example:

The conversion steps can be given as follows:

Given Number: 65

Equivalent or value less than the power of 2 is: 64

(1) 65 – 64 = 1

(2) 1 – 1= 0

65_{10} = (1000001)_{2}.

Question 3.

Explain the procedure to convert fractional decimal to Binary.

Answer:

The method of repeated multiplication by 2

has to be used to convert such kind of decimal fractions.

The steps involved in the method of repeated multiplication by 2:

Step 1: Multiply the decimal fraction by 2 and note the integer part. The integer part is either 0 or 1.

Step 2: Discard the integer part of the previous product. Multiply the fractional part of the previous product by 2. Repeat Step 1 until the same fraction repeats or terminates (0).

Step 3: The resulting integer part forms a sequence of Os and Is that becomes the binary equivalent of a decimal fraction.

Step 4: The final answer is to be written from the first integer part obtained till the last integer part obtained.

Write the integer parts from top to bottom to obtain the equivalent fractional binary number. Hence (0.2)_{10}= (0.00110011…)_{2} = 0.00110011)_{2}

Question 4.

How will you convert Binary to Decimal?

Answer:

To convert Binary to Decimal we can use the positional notation method.

Step 3; Multiply each digit with its corresponding weight

Step 4: Add all the values.

Example:

Convert (111011)2 into its equivalent decimal number.

32 + 16 + 8 + 0 + 2 + 1 = (59)_{10}

(111011)_{2} = (59)_{10}

Question 5.

How will you convert Binary to Octal?

Answer:

Step 1.: Group the given binary number into 3 bits from right to left.

Step 2: You can add preceding O to make a group of 3 bits if the leftmost group has less than 3 bits.

Step 3: Convert equivalent octal value using “2’s power positional weight method”

Example

Convert (11010110)_{2} into an octal equivalent number

Step 1: Group the given number into 3 bits from right to left.

011 010 110

The left-most groups have less than 3 bits, so 0 is added to its left to make a group of 3 bits.

Step-2: Find the Octal equivalent of each group.

Question 6.

Give the procedure to convert Binary to Hexadecimal.

Answer:

Step 1: Group the given number into 4 bits from right to left.

Step 2,2 : For all the digits write powers of 2 from left to right starting

from 2^{-1}, 2^{-2}, 2^{-3} 2^{-n}, now write the equivalent weight.

Step 2.3 : Multiply each digit with its corresponding weight.

Step 2.4 : Add all the values which you obtained in Step 2.3.

Step 3 : To get final answer write the integral

part (after conversion), followed by a decimal point(.) and the answer arrived at Step 2.4

Example:

Convert the given Binary number (11.011)_{2} into its decimal equivalent Integer part (11)_{2} = 3

Question 8.

Explain the method of representing signed binary numbers in the Signed Magnitude representation.

Answer:

The value of the whole numbers can be determined by the sign used before it. If the number has a ‘+’ sign or no sign it will be considered as positive. If the number has signed it will be considered negative.

Example:

+ 43 or 43 is a positive number

– 43 is a negative number

In signed binary representation, the leftmost bit is considered as a sign bit. If this bit is 0, it is a positive number and if it 1, it is a negative number. Therefore a signed binary number has 8 bits, only 7 bits used for storing values (magnitude), and 1 bit is used for signs.

Question 9.

Explain the method of representing signed binary numbers in l’s complement representation.

Answer:

This is an easier approach to represent signed numbers. This is for negative numbers only i.e. the number whose MSB is 1.

The steps to be followed to find l’s complement of a number:

Step 1: Convert given Decimal number into Binary

Step 2: Check if the binary number contains 8 bits, if less add 0 at the left most bit, to make it as 8 bits.

Step 3: Invert all bits (i.e. Change 1 as 0 and 0 as 1)

Example: Find 1’s complement for (-24)_{10}

Question 10.

Explain the method of representing signed binary numbers in 2’s complement representation.

Answer:

The 2’s-complement method for the negative number is as follows:

a) Invert all the bits in the binary sequence (i.e., change every 0 to 1 and every 1 to 0 ie.,l’s complement)

b) Add 1 to the result to the Least Significant Bit (LSB).

Example: 2’s Complement represent of (-24)_{10}

Question 11.

Question 11.

Explain binary subtraction with a suitable example.

Answer:

The table for Binary Subtraction is as follows:

When subtracting 1 from 0, borrow 1 from the next Most Significant Bit, when borrowing from the next Most Significant Bit, if it is 1, replace it with 0. If the next Most Significant Bit is 0, you must borrow from a more significant bit that contains 1 and replace it with 0 and 0s upto that point become Is.

Example : Subtract 1001010_{2} — 10100_{2}.

Example: Perform Binary addition for the

following:

(-21)_{10} + (5)_{10}

Step 1: Change -21 and 5 into binary form
