###### Question details

1) Given the 8-bit two’s complement numbers A = 0110 1000, and B = 0101 1010, compute –B in two’s complement, and then compute A – B by adding A and –B in two’s complement. Answer all the following: Determine: –B = Compute: A – B = Is there an overflow, and why? What is the value of the answer in decimal?

2) Compute the value of the following modular expression using modulo reduction. Your answer must be a specific mod 17 number, not a formula or expression of any kind. Show your work. 323 mod 17 =
