Unformatted text preview: Problem 1.23 Solution The bit configurations are as follows: 365= 101101101 2 365 = 0011 0110 0101 in BCD and 0011 0011 0011 0110 0011 0101 in 8-bit ASCII. Note that this problem emphasizes the fact that the bit configuration can represent different types of information depending on the code. Problem 1.24 Solution The total number for binary is 2 32 = 4294967296. For BCD each decimal digit takes four bits so there are 8 digits that can be represents so the total number of integers is 10 8 which is about a factor of 43 smaller that the binary representation. For ASCII each digit requires 8 bits so the total number of integers is 10 4 , 2...
