    Heey,
    can someone tell me in what devices the 4 bit magnitude comparator is being used ?

    The magnitude comparator compares 2 4-bit-numbers (say A and B). There are 3 outputs on the comparator indicating A>B, A=B and A<B....

    Can you think of one device or circuit that would need this kind of function?

    Hint: Inside a calculator or CPU.

    What kind of situations would it seem useful to be able to compare the magnitudes of two numbers?
