MC48 Homework 3 (Fall 1998)
Due: September 29, 1998
Consider taking the mirror image of a binary numeral, in the sense of
reversing the left-to-right order of the bits. For example, the
mirror image of 01100 is 00110. What binary numeral(s) have the
property that taking the mirror image produces the same result as
negating the numeral (using two's-complement)? Justify your answer: not
only why the numeral(s) you list have this property, but also why you
are sure than no others do.
Do exercise 4.21 on pages 325-326.
