A. A computer will either represent information as bits or bytes but not both

New cards
4

B. A computer represents data as a byte which is either a 0 or a 1

New cards
5

C. A computer represents data as bits which is either 0 or a 1

New cards
6

D. A computer represents information as bits which contains 8 bytes.

C. A computer represents data s bits which is either a 0 or a 1

Which of the following is NOT true of how computers represent complex information?

New cards
8
New cards
9

A. Computing devices use patterns of bits to represent complex information

New cards
10

B. Abstraction helps represent complex information by surfacing complexity that might otherwise be hidden

New cards
11

C. Depending on context the same sequence of bit may represent different types of information

New cards
12

D. Common abstractions that are represented by computing devices include numbers, characters, and color.

B. Abstraction helps represent complex information by surfacing complexity that might otherwise be hidden

When visiting a museum Lian takes a photo of a painting with a smartphone which stores the photo as an image file. Which of the following best describes the difference between the painting itself and the photo of the painting stored on the smartphone?

New cards
14
New cards
15

A. Both the painting and the photo are analog

New cards
16

B. The photo is a digital representation of the analog painting

New cards
17

C. Sampling can e used to determine whether the analog image is an accurate representation of the painting.

New cards
18

D. The phone can represent the photo in either digital or analog formats depending on the sampling technique that is used

I believe this is because you cannot represent the number sixteen with only four binary bits. The highest you can go is 15.

New cards

Which of the following is true of how computers represent numbers?

New cards
28
New cards
29

A. Using a fixed but large number of bits can eliminate the possibility of round off error when representing numbers in binary

New cards
30

B. With a fixed number of bits some numbers are too large to represent in a computer which will lead to overflow errors.

New cards
31

C. Using a fixed but large number of bits, for example 128, eliminates the possibility of overflow errors.

New cards
32

D. With a large but fixed number of bits it is possible to eliminate either round-off errors or overflow errors, but not both.

B. With a fixed number of bits some numbers are too large to represent in a computer which will lead to overflow errors.

Convert the binary (base-2) number 1001 to decimal (base-10)

New cards

B. 10

New cards

D. 17

A. 9

New cards

Refer to a flippy do, 1001 (1) = 2^3 (222) = 8, 0(null) 0(null) (1) = 2^0 (2*0) = 1

New cards
41
New cards

8+1 = 9

New cards
43

Convert the decimal (base-10) number 20 to binary (base-2)

New cards
44
New cards
45

A. 10010

New cards
46

B. 00101

New cards
47

C. 11000

New cards
48

D. 10100

D. 10100

New cards

New cards
50

Refer to a flippy do, 10100 = (2^4 = 16, 0 , 2^2 = 4, 0 ,0) 16+4 = 20, so = 10100

New cards

which of the following binary base-2 numbers is LARGEST?

New cards
52
New cards
53

A. 11000000

New cards
54

B. 01111111

New cards
55

C. 00000001

New cards
56

D. 10111111

A. 11000000

New cards
57
New cards
58

A = 128 + 64 + 0 +0 +0 +0 +0 +0 =0 = 192

New cards
59

B= 0 + 64 +32 + 16 +8 + 4 + 2 + 1 = 127

New cards
60

C = 0+0+0+0+0+0+0 + 1 = 1

New cards
61

D. = 128 + 0 +32 + 16 +8 +4 +2 + 1 = 191

How many total numbers can be represented with an 8-bit binary (base-2) system?

New cards
63
New cards

A. 127

New cards

B. 128

New cards

D. 256

D. 256

New cards

2^0=1

New cards
72

2^1=2

New cards
73

2^2=4

New cards
74

2^3=8

New cards
75

2^4=16

New cards
76

2^5=32

New cards
77

2^6=64

New cards
78

2^7=128

New cards
79

1+2+4+8+16+32+64+128=255, but 00000000(which is 0) also counts as a number, so the answer is 256.

81

A. Lossy compression algorithms are used when perfect reconstruction of the original data is important.

New cards

New cards
83

C. Lossless compression algorithms are only used to compress text data.

New cards
84

D. Lossless compression algorithms only allow for an approximate reconstruction of the original data.

B. Lossy compression algorithms are typically better than lossless compression algorithms at reducing the number of bits needed to represent a piece of data.

When a file is compressed it gives room for a lot of files to be fused into one for easy access and also to ensure that the files aren't too large for use later in the future.

New cards
93

New cards
94
