In Section 2.5 we showed how integers can be represented by strings of O's and 1's inside a digital computer. In fact, through various coding schemes, strings of O's and I's can be used 10 represent all kinds of symbols. One commonly used code is the Extended Binary-Coded Decimal Interchange Code (EBCDIC) in which each symbol has an K-bit representation. How many distinct symbols can be represented by this code?
The number of distinct symbols can be represented by given code.
Set with three elements to a set with four elements.
An -bit representation of each symbol is unique and is a string of consisting of locations.
Decimal Interchange Code is a code in which each symbol has an -bit representation. An -bit representation of each symbol is unique and is a string of consisting of locations
