In BCD addition when the number exceed 9 we add 6 as the correction value. Although I tried all the cases and saw tthat 6 was indeed the asnwer, how do I prove that? Suppose that instead of BCD I had a 6-bit number, what would be the correction value for that coding?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
