## INFORMATION

A decimal number can be converted to an excess-3 code by adding 3 to each digit and converting the sums to 4-bit binary numbers.

For example, (273)10 is a decimal number. If we add <>3 to each digit, we obtain

• 2 + 3 = 5,
• 7 + 3 = 10 and
• 3 + 3 = 6.

Now, we convert those numbers to 4-bit binary numbers.

• (5)10 = (0101)2,
• (10)10 = (1010)2 and
• (6)10 = (0110)2.

Writing those binary numbers in the same order of decimal equivalents we obtain the excess-3 code.

(273)10 = (0101 1010 0110)XS3
