Representation of numbers in quantum bits

  • #1
Hi,

A bit is a fundamental unit of information, classically represented as a 0 or 1 in your digital computer. I now number 100 is written in classical bits 0 and 1 as 1100100.Then How to represent 100 in qbits.


cheers!!

Exactly the same way. A qubit can be in a superposition of 0 and 1, but when representing something exactly there is no superposition. Superpositions are used during the processing of the qubits, and eventually in the preparation of the initial state of a quantum computation.
