Unformatted text preview: a) obtain the binary presentation for the following negative decimal number:  6 10 = 11111010 starting with +6: 00000110 1’s complementing by inversion of all bits: 11111001 + ______ 1 2’s complement by incrementing the 1’s complement: 11111010 b) determine both sign and magnitude of the binary number presented as follows 11111010 2 = 6 10 MSB = 1 indicates that the sign is negative. Thus, the number is presented in the 2’s complement form. In this case the binary magnitude is obtained by 2’s finding a 2’s complement of the number in the 2’s complement form. 11111010 1’s complement by bit inversion 00000101 2’s complement by incrementing the 1’s complement 00000110 = 6...
