What are you hoping to get out of CSCI S-1b?
What's the smallest decimal number that you can represent with 3
What's the largest decimal number that you can represent with 3 bits?
In lecture, we only discussed how to represent positive numbers (and

Write an algorithm (i.e., step-by-step instructions) for something you
do every day. Assume that the algorithm will be executed a robot who,
