1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data For the counter shown below, determine the main cycle, and for each of the unused states, show what happens if it starts up there. http://i45.tinypic.com/33l1lhc.jpg 2. Relevant equations N/A 3. The attempt at a solution I thought I knew how to do this, but after some deliberation I've determined that I probably don't. It seems to me that, if I started at 000...I would get the sequence 000->010->100->101->010...which would then repeat through three states. I don't know why, but something tells me this isn't right. Can anyone explain to me how to do problems like these? And this is a synchronous counter, right?
