10. Figure 3-4 Components of a byte • Byte • Eight bits together • Computers read and write information • Using bits and bytes • Find decimal value of a bit • Multiply the 1 or 0 by 2x (x equals bit’s position)

11. Analog and Digital Signaling (cont’d.) • Convert byte to decimal number • Determine value represented by each bit • Add values • Convert decimal number to a byte • Reverse the process • Convert between binary and decimal • By hand or calculator

12. Binary to Decimal conversion • Binary numbers are sometimes written prefixed with 0b • 0b0001 = 0*8 + 0*4 + 0*2 + 1*1 = 1 • 0b1010 = 1*8 + 0*4 + 1*2 + 0*1 = 10 • 0b1011 = 1*8 + 0*4 + 1*2 + 1*1 = 11

13. Decimal to Binary • 14 = 8+4+2 = 1*8 + 1*4 + 1*2 + 0*1 = 0b1110 • 3 = 2+1 = 0*8 + 0*4 + 1*2 + 1*1 = 0b0011 • 6 = 4+2 = 0*8 + 1*4 + 1*2 + 0*1 = 0b0110

14. Larger Values 128= 1*128 + 0*64 + 0*32 +0*16 +0*8 +0*4 + 0*2 +0*1 128 = 0b10000000 162= 128 + 32 + 2 162= 1*128 + 0*64 + 1*32 +0*16 +0*8 +0*4 + 1*2 +0*1 162 = 0b10100010 0b1111000 = 1*128 + 1*64 + 1*32 +1*16 +0*8 +0*4 + 0*2 +0*1 0 = 128 + 64 + 32 +16 = 240
