Programming Assignment #4

Key learning:  loops

Write a program that will convert an unsigned integer into binary representation.  The algorithm for converting an integer into binary is explained and shown below in an example:

1.  Take the number and divide it by 2

2.  If the result has a remainder, add a bit to the binary result.  This first time around you add a bit to the 20 position.  The second time around you add to the 21 position, the third time around you add to the 22 and so forth...

3.  Now remove the remainder from the result in (2) and set that number equal to the new number.

4.  Repeat (1)-(3) until result from part (3) is 0.

 Ex. Number is 5 Current binary representation 1. Divide number by 2. 5/2 = 2.5 2. Remainder of 2.5 = 0.5. Remainder is nonzero => Set 2^0 position to 1 1 3. Remove remainder set new number to 2.0 4. Divide new number by 2. 2.0/2 = 1.0 5. Remainder of 1.0 = 0. Remainder is 0 => set 2^1 position to 0. 01 6. Remove remainder, set new number to 1.0 7. Divide new number by 2. 1.0/2 = 0.5 8. Remainder of 0.5 = 0.5. Remainder is nonzero => set 2^2 position to 1 101 9. Remove remainder, set new number to 0 10. New number is equal to 0 quit Result: 101

What you need to do to write this program is
(1) use floating point registers
(2) figure out out to check a number for its remainder
(3) reset the new number
(4) add the correctly weighted bit to the result.
Good luck.
