Are you into binary?

Postby spotify95 » Oct 18th, 2014, 14:20

If so, TSR is launching two brand new threads!

CTAM in binary, and CTAMM in binary! :D

If you're any good at binary, did you want those creating here?

Plus - TSR are making a Million to Zero thread too :)

So your calculator can convert to binary? :)

Can it also do 2's compliment? I think that 2's compliment might be needed for the negative binary - but we'll have to check.

Yes, It can! It can also convert to hexadecimal and octal. What calculator do you have? I don't know what 2s compliment is as I only know the conversion of positive decimals to binary, octal and base 5 which I learnt back in high school.

I tried converting negative decimals to binary on my calculator. Have a look: https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-Nb4_ ... 164848.jpg
Is that the right answer?

I haven't got that calculator, though it is scientific. I have the Casio FX85, not the 570 which you have.

That answer looks a bit weird, though having said that negative binary really isn't my strong point.

I do know about hex, bin and octal, as well as BCD (binary coded decimal)

I only started to learn about 2's compliment last year, and I think that is how the negative thread will work. Basically, you take the positive binary for the number (if negative), invert all of the digits and then add 1 to it.

You can have a look here about 2's compliment:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Two's_complement
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Two's_comp ... complement

edit: Yeah, just manually tried doing the 2's compliment of 121 and the calculator is indeed correct.

I hate binary, but if you want to create such threads on here, you are more than welcome to. :thumbsup:

You should consider upgrading your calculator. I used the 570-MS in high school and while in college, I got the 570ES PLUS which is able to display the answer in exact form. I looked at the links and I kind of understand the Two's complement but I'm prone to mistakes. So, I'll stick to using my calculator! :D

Okay thanks! :)

I was also interested in whether you wanted to post on the TSR version of the binary threads? :)
