4. Student ID number
Full credit is given if the student’s name and ID number are at the top of their solution, and their
student ID number is listed as the answer to this problem. For my solution (and for problem #5),
I will use the simple number 00123456. 5. Number conversion
Part 1: For converting to binary, I used the strategy of dividing by two, and writing a 0 for every
even number, and a 1 for every even number:
123,456
61,728
30,864
15,432
7,716
3,858
1,929
964
482
241

1 So, 123,45610 = 111100010010000002. To convert to hexadecimal, just group the bits in groups
of 4 (from the right) and convert each group:
0001
1 1110
E 0010
2 0100
4 0000
0 Finally, 123,45610 = 1E24016 (which is 20 bits).
Part 2: To negate a two’s complement number, invert the bits and add one, and reconvert to
hexadecimal.
00011110001001000000
inverted becomes:
11100001110110111111
+1
11100001110111000000
1110
E 0001
1 1101
D 1100
C 0000
0 So, 123,45610 = E1DC016 (using two’s complement, 20 bits).
Part 3: When using biased notation, add the bias, then convert to unsigned binary (not two’s
complement). The bias is 219 1, or 524,28710, or even more simply, 011111111111111111112. I
will simplify my work even more by viewing this as 8000016 – 1. Then, to add the bias, I’ll do
the math in hexadecimal (ignoring any overflow) and I’ll end up with the right answers. Part 3:
+219
1 1E24016
+8000016
9E24016
116
9E23F16 Part 4:
+219
1 E1DC016
+8000016
61DC016
116
61DBF16 Notice how I ignored the overflow in part 4, and kept the answer as a 20bit number. 6. MARS MIPS Simulator warm up code
This problem asked you to run the mystery code in the assignment. The mystery code took an
integer input, divided it by 2.5, and displayed the resulting quotient. For example, if you input
421, the program would output 168 because 421/2.5 = 168 (using integer division).
Students should have done the following: Written down their ID number divided by 2.5, and
Written down their ID number multiplied by 2.5 (ok to be slightly over). Credit will also be given if you clearly describe the behavior of the program....
