Chapter 4 - Number Representation and Calculation - 4.2 Number Bases in Positional Systems - Exercise Set 4.2: 62

Answer

The binary core for $Y$ is: $1011001$

Work Step by Step

The essay states that the uppercase letter $Y$ is assigned the number $89$. To find the binary representation for this, use division. The place values in base two are $..., 2^7, 2^6, 2^5, 2^4, 2^3, 2^2, 2^1, 1$ The place values that are less than or equal to $89$ are $2^6, 2^5, 2^4, 2^3, 2^2, 2^1$ and $1$. Divide $89$ by $2^6$ or $64$: $89 \div 64 = 1$ remainder $25$ Divide $25$ by $2^5$ or $32$ $25 \div 32 = 0$ remainder $25$ Divide $25$ by $2^4$ or $16$: $25 \div 16 = 1$ remainder $9$ Divide $9$ by $2^3$ or $8$: $9 \div 8 = 1$ remainder $1$ Divide $1$ by $2^2$: $1 \div 4=0$ remainder $1$ Divide $1$ by $2^1$ or $2$: $1 \div 2 = 0$ remainder $1$ Divide $1$ by $1$: $1 \div 1 = 1$ Thus, $89 = (1 \times 2^6) + (0 \times 2^5) + (1 \times 2^4)+(1 \times 2^3)+(0\times 2^2) + (0 \times 2)+(1 \times 1) \\89=1011001_{\text{two}}$
