## INFORMATION

In signed subtraction, we take the 2's complement of the subtrahend and add it to the minuend.

• If the sum and addends have the same number of bits, the result is equal to the sum.
• If we obtain an extra carry bit in the MSB of the sum, we discard it. The remaining part gives us the result.

### WHAT IS SIGNED BINARY SUBTRACTION CALCULATOR?

Signed binary subtraction calculator,

• Converts the entered decimal numbers to signed binary representation,
• Takes the 2's complement of the subtrahend,
• Adds minuend to the 2's complement of the subtrahend,
• Discard the end carry if necessary,
• Finds the sum in 2's complement binary representation,
• Converts the result to decimal and
• Describes all solution steps.

### HOW TO USE THE SIGNED BINARY SUBTRACTION CALCULATOR?

You can use the signed binary subtraction calculator in two ways.

• #### USER INPUTS

You can enter positive or negative base 10 numbers to the input boxes and click on the "CONVERT" button. You can specify the numbers of bits for the 2's complement signed binary representation. The result and explanations appaer below the calculator.

• #### RANDOM INPUTS

You can click on the DIE ICON next to the input box. If you use this property, two random numbers are generated and entered to the calculator, automatically. You can see the result and explanations below the calculator. You can create your own examples and practice using this property.
