    So there's these two questions that I don' understand :/

    1) What is the greatest decimal integer you can represent with
    a)4 b)8 c)16 bits?

    2)How many different permutations of numbers can you represent with:
    a)4 b)8 c)16 d)20 e) 24 bits?

    It is urgent, any help would be appreciated, thanks in advance

    Not so sure on the first one.

    I thought I'd bump the thread by saying a suggestion for no. 2 but you can't take my word for it
    I believe you do each bit number to the power of 2 (because binary is base 2).
    So for 4 bits, you'd have 2^4 permutations (16 variations)

    For 1) you can find the answer by the formula ((2^n)-1)

    For 2) its just the formula 2^n

    So for the first one for 4 bits it'd be ((2^4)-1)=(16-1)=15?

    Oh, ok yh that confirms it

    Thank you so much!
