Is there a relationship between EBCDIC character representation of the decimal digits from 0 to 9 and their BCD representation? Explain.
Consider a hypothetical computer system. A 12-bit memory space is used for a sign-and-magnitude representation of integers with BCD and the sign is stored in MSB. What is the range of signed integers in base 10 that can be represented? Explain.
