### 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**.

### 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**- Learn what binary means.
- Add one by changing the last 0 into a 1.
- Write another digit if all the numbers are one.
- Use these rules to count to five.
- Count to six.
- Count to ten.
- Notice when new digits get added.
- Practice with higher numbers.
