Perform the following arithmetic operations :-

using binary signed 2’s complement notation for integers. You may assume that the maximum size of integers is of 9 bits including the sign bit. (Please note that the numbers given here are in decimal notation).

i)                    Add – 256 and 206

ii)                  Subtract 224 from –99

iii)                Add 124 and 132

Please indicate the overflow if it occurs. Also write how you identify overflow.

i) Add – 256 and 206

First, we have to represent the number in binary notation

The sign of a binary number is represented by 0 as plus and 1 as minus

Sign bit                                 8 -bits

 0 / 1

Now, Binary value of the given number

206 – 11001110

256 – 100000000

This number value is of more than 8-bits (i.e.9-bits) in signed 2’s complement notation also the value remains the same. Hence this number cannot fit inside it.

To add this numbers we will need one more bit, hence Addition not possible.
