# Binary Adding, Subtraction, Multiplicaton and Division

## Adding, subtracting, multiplying and dividing binary numbers.

A binary signal or number is one that can take only one value: 1 or 0 -or on or off.

• 0 + 0 = 0
• 0 + 1 = 1
• 1 + 0 = 1
• 1 + 1 = 0 (with a carry of 1)

1 5
+ 6
= 11
101
+ 110
= 1011
2 6
+ 6
= 12
110
+ 110
= 1100
3 15
+ 20
= 35
1111
+ 10100
= 100011
4 3.25
+ 5.75
= 9.00
11.01
+ 101.11
= 1001.00

### Subtracting Binary Numbers

Rule to follow when binary numbers are subtracted:

• 0 - 0 = 0
• 1 - 0 = 1
• 1 - 1 = 0
• 0 - 1 = 1 (with a borrow of 1)
