## Homework Statement

I have already converted the following numbers 15,765 and -8,773 into 9's complement form. Which gave me the result:

9's Complement of 15,765 = 99,999-84,234 = 84,234

9's Complement of -8,773 = 99,999-(-8,773) = 108,772

Now that I converted the following 5 digit numbers into 9's Complement, am starting to have problems dealing with finding the sum of the two numbers in 9's complement arithmetic and then converting it back into decimal form. I'm not sure if it has anything to do with Sign and magnitude, but can't seem to find a way around this problem.

## Homework Equations

No equations.

## The Attempt at a Solution

My solution so far is:

9's Complement of 15,765 = 99,999-84,234 = 84,234

9's Complement of -8,773 = 99,999-(-8,773) = 108,772
