11. (a) A= 00 and CY= 1 (b) A= FF and CY= 0

12. 43H = 0100 0011 and -O5H (in 2's complement ) 0100 0011 if both added then

the result is 3EH = 0011 1110

13. A = 95H - 4FH - 1 = 45H

3. The range of byte-sized signed operands is -_____to + ______

4. Show +9 and -9 in binary.

5. Explain the difference between a carry and an overflow.

1. D7

2. 16H is 00010110 in binary and its 2's complement is 1110 1010 or -16H = EA in hex.

3. -128 to +127

4. +9 = 00001001 and -9 = 11110111 or F7 in hex.

5. An overflow is a carry into the sign bit (D7), but the carry is a carry out of register (D7).

9. Show how to save the status of P2.7 in RAM bit location 31.

10. Show how to move the status of RAM bit location 09 to Pl.4.

1. 52H

2. 2AH

3. COH

SECTION 6.5: BCD, ASCII, AND OTHER APPLICATION PROGRAMS

1. For the following decimal numbers, give the packed BCD and unpacked BCD representations.

6. The checksum byte method is used to test data integrity in (RAM, ROM).

7. Find the checksum byte for the following hex values: 88H, 99H, AAH, BBH, CCH, DDH

8. True or false. If we add all the bytes, including

1. (a) 15H = 0001 0101 packed BCD, 0000 0001,0000 0101 unpacked BCD

(b) 99H = 10011001 packed BCD, 00001001,0000 1001 unpacked BCD

2. 3736H = 00110111 00110110B and in BCD we have 76H = 0111 OllOB

3. No. We need to write it 54H (with the H) or 01010100B to make it in BCD. The value 54 without the "H" is interpreted as 36H by the assembler.

4. 36H,37H

5. Yes, since A= 39H

7. 88H + 99H + AAH + BBH + CCH + DDH = 42FH. Dropping the carries we have 2FH, and its 2's complement is DlH.

8. False
