    Unhappy ID Num

    I have a question to ask here.There is a formula to calculate a certain ID num but i don't how to do it? any guidance?

    Example.

    8 7 6 5 4 3 2 1
    ^ ^ V V ^ ^ V ^

    8=^
    7=^
    6=V
    5=V
    4=^
    3=^
    2=V
    1=^
    Easy for you to see.


    if ^ = no value
    if V = value.

    with all the symbol of V= it shows ID num 50 all above.
    how to get it?i heard by using power of 2 to get the id num.
    i can't get it anyway. pls direct me to get a id num of 55.
    thanks.. quite urgent!

    8=^
    7=^
    6=V
    5=V
    4=^
    3=^
    2=V
    1=^

    Oh come on, this is just binary
    00110010 = 50
    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.

    Stop asking us to do your homework. I can't believe Salem just gave it to you like that.

    Dude, if its on add it together.. if its off then dont include it.....
    And its in powers of two. Think of it as a binary system. Google binary.

    If the place number is 8 the multiply 2 8 times. ( 2 * 2 * 2 * 2 * 2 * 2 * 2 * 2 ).
    What is C++?

    No, the scary thing is that it appears that this is your job

    A job for which you've been using this board (and I'd guess many others so as to not wear out your welcome) as your own personal tech-support forum.

    You've only ever asked TWO (count 'em) actual C++ questions, and those were back in 1991. Ever since, it's been random tech support questions all the way.

    d00der... just take the answer that was already given to you and use it... the whole point he's trying to make (I assume) is that we'll help you along as long as you pull your own weight... we're not here to simply give you the answer, and we're not going to do that because we want you to learn... the answer to your question is: it's binary. look up a little about binary and figure the rest out yourself.

    if we give you this answer, you'll never know how to get it again if you ever forget, but if we show you how to get the answer, you'll be able to derive it whenever you need to.

    in other words:

    give a man a fish, you feed him for a night. teach a man how to catch a fish and you feed him for a lifetime.

    Which is exactly how your posts read - you come here for every single problem you have without even thinking about the problem yourself or even trying to use google.

    anything with ^ is 0 (zero)
    anything with v is 1 (one)

    read from the right side: (see pic below)

    32+16+2 = 50
