Range of Sign-Magnitude

  1. Jan 30, 2009 #1
    1.What is range of sign-magnitude numbers that can be represented with 34-bits

    I kind of get it but I'm not sure, I know it has something to do with -2^n -1, 2^n-1 but I'm not sure how to represent it or what the question is really asking. Can anyone help?

    You are correct. Clue: the n is 34 in your case.
