C6 1. How many bits do you need to represent a number in excess-16 format? What is the excess-16 representation of 12? 16 = 2 4 = 2 N-1 N =5. Five bits are needed to represent the number in excess-16 format. Step 1. Add 16 to the number 16+12=28 Step 2. Convert to binary 12 in excess-16 = 11100 2. Convert 29/8 into binary 8-bit floating-point representation. Step1. Set the sign bit to zero since number is positive Step2. Convert the number into binary representation 29/8 = 3 + 5/8 = 011.101 Step 3. Normalize the binary representation 0.11101 * 2 2 Step 4.Convert the exponent into excess-4 2 = 110 Step 5. Fill in the mantissa Therefore 29/8 = 01101110 3. Sketch the basic von Neumann architecture and describe each component in a few lines. The von Neumann architecture describes a computer with four main sections: the Arithmetic and Logic Unit (ALU) the control unit (CU) the memory the input and output devices (collectively termed I/O) These parts are interconnected by a bundle of wires, a Bus.
