Question 18.

Write short note on hexadecimal number system.

Answer:

A hexadecimal number is represented using base 16. Hexadecimal or Hex numbers are used as a shorthand form of binary sequence. This system is used to represent data in a more compact manner. Since 16 symbols are used, 0 to F, the notation is called hexadecimal. The first 10 symbols are the same as in the decimal system, 0 to 9 and the remaining 6 symbols are taken from the first 6 letters of the alphabet sequence, A to F, where A represents 10, B is 11, C is 12, D is 13, E is 14 and F is 15.

Eg: The hexadecimal sequence (25)16 has the decimal equivalent:

(25)<sub>16</sub> = 2 × 16<sup>1</sup> + 5 × 16<sup>0</sup>

= 32 + 5 = (37)<sub>10</sub>

Question 19.

Write the hierarchy of data representation.

Answer:

Question 20.

(iii) Multiply each digit with its corresponding weight.

(iv) Add all the values.

Eg: Convert (1265)_{8} to equivalent Decimal number.

(1265)_{8} = 512 × 1 + 64 × 2 + 8 × 6 + 1 × 5

= 512 + 128+ 18 + 5

(1265)_{8} = (693)_{10}

Question 24.

Write the steps for converting hexadecimal to decimal.

Answer:

To convert Hexadecimal to Decimal we canuse positional notation method.

(i) Write down the Hexadecimal digits and list the powers of 16 from right to left (Positional Notation).

(ii) For each positional notation written for the. digit, now write the equivalent weight.

(iii) Multiply each digit with its corresponding weight.

(iv) Add all the values to get one final value.

Eg: Convert (25F)_{16} into its equivalent Decimal number.

(25F)_{16} = 2 × 256 + 5 × 16 + 15 × 1

= 512 + 80 + 15

(25F)_{16} = (607)_{10}

Question 25.

Write short note on signed magnitude representation.

Answer:

The value of the whole numbers can be determined by the sign used before it. If the number has ‘+‘ sign or no sign it will be considered as positive. If the number has ‘—‘ sign it will be considered as negative.

Eg: +43 or 43 is a positive number.

– 43 is a negative number.

In signed binary representation, the left most bit is considered as sign bit. If this bit is O, it is a positive number and if it is 1, it is a negative number. Therefore a signed binary number has 8 bits, only 7 bits used for storing values (magnitude) and the 1 bit is used for sign.

+ 43 is represented in memory as follows:

– 43 is represented in memory as follows:

Question 26.

Write 2’s complement procedure with example.

Answer:

The 2’s complement method for negative number is as follows:

(i) Invert all the bits in the binary sequence

(i.e., change every 0 to 1 and every 1 to 0 i.e.,1‘s complement).

(ii) Add I to the result to the Least Significant Bit (LSB).

Eg: 2’s Complement represent of (-24)_{10}

Binary equivalent of +24 = 11000

8bit format = 00011000

1’s complement = 11100111

Add 1 to LSB = +1

2’s complement of -24 = 11101000

Question 27.

Write short note unicode.

Answer:

Unicode is used in most of the modem computers. The popular coding scheme after ASCII is Unicode. ASCII can represent only 256 characters. ‘English and European Languages alone can be handled by ASCII.

Languages like Tamil, Malayalam, Kannada and Telugu could not be represented by ASCII. Hence, the Unicode was generated to handle all the coding system of Universal languages. Unicode is 16 bit code and can handle 65536 characters.

Question 28.

Question 29.

Explain in detail the different encoding systems used for computer.

Answer:

There are several encoding systems used for computer. They are –

(i)Binary Coded Decimal (BCD):

It is 26 bit encoding system. It can handle 26 = 64 characters only. This encoding system is not in the practice right now.

(ii)American Standard Code for information Interchange (ASCII):

This is the most popular encoding system recognized by United States. Most of the computers use this system. This encoding system can handle English characters only. This can handle 2<sup>7</sup> bit which means 128 characters. Here each character has individual number.

The new edition (version) ASCII – 8, has 2<sup>8</sup> bits and can handle 256 characters represented from 0 to 255 unique umbers.

The ASCII code equivalent to the uppercase letter ‘A’ is 65. The binary representation of ASCII (7 bit) value is 1000001. Also 01000001 in ASCII-8 bit.

(iii)Extended Binary Coded Decimal Interchange Code (EBCDIC):

This is similar to ASCII Code with 8 bit representation. This coding system is formulated by International Business Machine(IBM). The coding system can handle 256 characters. The input code in ASCII can be converted to EBCDIC system and vice – versa.

(iv)Indian Standard Code for Information Interchange (ISCII):

ISCII is the system of handling the character of Indian local languages. This is a 8-bit coding system and can handle 256 (2<sup>8</sup>) characters. It is formulated by the department of Electronics in India in the year 1986- 88 and recognized by Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS). Now this coding system is integrated with Unicode.

(v) Unicode:

This coding system is used in most of the modem computers. The popular coding scheme after ASCII is Unicode. ASCII can represent only 256 characters. Therefore English and European Languages alone can be

handled by ASCII. Languages like Tamil, Malayalam, Kannada and Telugu could not be represented by ASCII. Hence, the Unicode was generated to handle all the coding system of Universal languages. This is 16 bit code and can handle 65536 characters.
