(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

a) 50 b) 23

Product of the hexadecimal unsigned 8-bit integers

2. Relevant equations

Step Action |||||||||| Multiplicand ||||||| Product/Multiplier

0 Initial Vals ||||||||| 101 000 ||||||| 000 000 010 011

3. The attempt at a solution

How did they get the initial values? 50 should be the multiplicand

50 = 5*16 + 0*1 = 80

80 = 1010000 in binary which is not 101 000

23 hex = 35 decimal = 100011 binary ... does not equal 10011

I somehow have an extra zero in both :(?
