This is an example of adding 2 byte long numbers. If the 2 digits being added are 1 and 1 with a carry out of 1, then the next carry in would be one. But if the next two digits were 0 and 0, the carry out would be zero, but for some reason the next carry in is still 1! I attached an image for anyone to see what I'm tlaking about. Can ya help me?! __________________ __________________ i hate computers

I have taken symbolic logic and boolean equations but not in regards to adding bytes. I will have to look this stuff up and refresh the old grey matter... Anyway, in looking at your table.... I see pattern sequences in the vertical columns that are consistent. And as I write this I have found a page that may be of assistance to you... How Boolean Logic Works I'll be giving this a good look over once I'm back home! Hope it helps __________________ Life is a terminal sexually transmitted condition.
