    Help please for unit 4, jan 04 paper.


    The binary button 1011 0111 0110 can be interpreted in a number of different ways.

    State is value in denary if it represents an unsigned fixed point number with four bits after the bunary point.

    The binary button 1011 0111 0110 can be interpreted in a number of different ways.

    State is value in denary if it represents an unsigned fixed point number with four bits after the bunary point.
    four bits after binary point:

    10110111.0110

    portion after decimal point:

    .0110 = 1/4 + 1/8 = 0.375

    before decimal point:
    10110111 = 1 + 2 + 4 + 16 + 32 + 128 = 183

    183 + 0.375 = 183.375???
