### What is the largest binary number in 8 bits?

The largest number you can represent with 8 bits is 11111111, or 255 in decimal notation. Since 00000000 is the smallest, you can represent 256 things with a byte. (Remember, a bite is just a pattern. It can represent a letter or a shade of green.)
• #### What range of numbers can be represented by 8 bits?

For example, an 8-bit unsigned number can represent the values 0 to 255 (11111111). However a two's complement 8-bit number can only represent positive integers from 0 to 127 (01111111), because the rest of the bit combinations with the most significant bit as '1' represent the negative integers −1 to −128.
• #### How many bits are in a word?

Data structures containing such different sized words refer to them as WORD (16 bits/2 bytes), DWORD (32 bits/4 bytes) and QWORD (64 bits/8 bytes) respectively.
• #### Can character data be stored in computer memory?

representing numbers. The part of Java that is. languages. A data type that cannot be used. object. Which of the following is NOT the name of a Java primitive. character data be stored in computer memory? No—computers can only store numbers. No—computer memory.
B.

### How many different numbers can be represented with 4 bits?

In hexadecimal notation, 4 bits (a nibble) are represented by a single digit. There is obviously a problem with this since 4 bits gives 16 possible combinations, and there are only 10 unique decimal digits, 0 to 9.
• #### Why digital data is represented in binary?

Binary is a mathematical number system: a way of counting. We have all learned to count using ten digits: 0-9. One probable reason is that we have ten fingers to represent numbers. The computer has switches to represent data and switches have only two states: ON and OFF.
• #### How many different values are there in a byte?

By including the zeroeth entry you have 256 unique values. Because a byte, by its standard definition, is 8 bits which can represent 256 values (0 through 255). A byte has only 8 bits.
• #### How do you count in the binary system?

Method 1 Learning Binary
1. Learn what binary means.
2. Add one by changing the last 0 into a 1.
3. Write another digit if all the numbers are one.
4. Use these rules to count to five.
5. Count to six.
6. Count to ten.
7. Notice when new digits get added.
8. Practice with higher numbers.
