Assignment

Answer the questions listed below.
Write your answers on 8½ x 11 paper (lined or unlined) or print out this page and write your answers on it. When answering questions number the answer to match the question and state the answer in a complete sentence such that the reader will have a good idea of what the original question was.
Example:

    Question:
    1. What is an algorithm?

    Answer:
    1. An algorithm is a list of steps to solve a problem in a finite
       amount of time.

Section A: Complete the exercise below utilizing the ASCII (American Standard Code for Information Exchange) coding scheme handed out in class, . Write your answer in the space provided.

Exercise using ASCII Code – 10 points

Write a short sentence in English (4 or more words). Translate each letter of each word including spaces and punctuation into its binary representation using the ASCII chart you were given. Note that lower case and upper case letters have different codes! (Don’t forget about spaces!)

Example:
At
10000011110100
