    Thumbs up Number Conversions

    Hi, this is my first time posting to this forum so please let me know if I'm doing anything wrong.
    I would like to know how to do the following...
    a. Write the internal representation of “17” in ASCII using two binary numbers
    b. Write 17 and -17 in two’s complement notation. Use 8 bits for each
    c. Write 0100101111112 in hexadecimal and 3F16 in binary

    I would appreciate your help, thanks.

    thank you daved.
    what do you mean by internal representation ?
    i think it means how that is represented by the actual computer in memory, in binary representation. (someone correct me if I'm wrong)
