Each different length of line means something different as shown in the experiment. In the USPS, the lines at the bottom of each envelope display the zip code of the address to where it is being sent. Using this code translation, one can efficiently organize mail being delivered with the correct program. 3 Procedure In this section we will explain how exactly to design the necessary tables and circuits to complete the lab. 3.1 Creating Tables To begin the experiment one must first create a table of the binary values from one to nine. Afterwards it is necessary to convert these binary values into POSTNET values....
