UNIT 1 ASSIGNMENT 2 Part 1: Discuss a Minimum of Three Conversion Methods Base Range Method: Range=Base^n The base range method is one way to covert numbers of different bases. The equation is Range=Base^n. The power is incremented by the digit position from right to left; the base of the number represents a weight of B to a power starting with B0. B0 has a weight of one for any number base. In order to determine the decimal equivalent for any number in any base is by multiplying each digit by the weight in the given base corresponding to the position of the digit for that number. Example: Binary number 10011 to decimal would be 19 10011 = 1*2^4 (= 16) + 0*2^3 (= 0) + 0*2^2 (= 0) + 1*2^1 (=2) + 1*2^0 (= 1) = 19 Arithmetic Table: In order to create a base table, one must identify the base of the number system and create the first row and column, starting with the second cell of the table with numbers starting from 0 and increment by 1 up to the number of the base, ie., if the base is 8 then the table’s first row and column, starting with the second cell, will start with 0 and count up 8 places up to the number 7. The first cell of the table will contain the arithmetic operation. If the value of the number of a cell in the ones column exceeds the value of the base the value of the number in the tens place will be incremented by one, ie., in a base 3 table 3+2=5 (base 10) = 11 (base 3) and 3x3 = 9 (base 10) = 21. In order to simplify conversion from one number base to another it is wise to use an

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
