Unformatted text preview: complement machine using arithmetic right shifts, the C expression (x<0 ? (x + (1<<k)1) : x) >> k is equivalent to x/pwr2k, where pwr2k equals ¾k . For example, to divide by ¾, we first add bias ¾ ½ ½ giving bit pattern ½½¼¼ . Right shifting this by one arithmetically gives bit pattern ½½½¼ , which is the two’s complement representation of ¾. Practice Problem 2.22: In the following code, we have omitted the definitions of constants M and N: #define M /* Mystery number 1 */ #define N /* Mystery number 2 */ int arith(int x, int y) { int result = 0; result = x*M + y/N; /* M and N are mystery numbers. */ return result; } Ü ½ Ü ½ Ü ½ Ü ¾ Ü which is the sign extension from Û bits to Û bits of Ü ½ Ü ¾ Ü . Thus, this shifted bit vector is the two’s complement representation of Ü Ý . For Ü ¼, our analysis shows that this shifted result is the desired value. For Ü ¼ and Ý ¼, however, the result of integer division should be Ü Ý , where for any real number , is defined to be the unique...
