## Homework Statement

let me check my understanding of what a twos complement

when you use the rs complement system that means you use that system to express negative numbers only; in order to express the rs complement of a number you take r^n - that number; however if the number you want to express is positive then you do not really use the twos complement system, so it is somewhat of a misnomer.

I mean that even if we are working in the two's complement system and we want to express 5 we do not take r^n - 5,we just write 5

does all that make sense
