1) What is the difference between a 4-bit binary integer and a 5-bit binary coded decimal (BCD) integer? The book doesn't seem to mention it. The example given in the question is:

Binary integer 1100 converts to the BCD integer 10010

2) I'll just give an example question:

Ok so I know how to convert a transition table into a primitive flow table... but I don't understand how you can get a transition table from the information given. I always thought that a transition table showed the change from one state to another..?IF (x = 1) AND (y = 0)THEN Q = 0ELSEIF (x = 1) AND (y = 1)

THEN Q = (Qlast)'......(the compliment of Qlast)ELSE

Q = (y)'ENDIF

(a) Derive the draft transition table

(b) Expand the draft transition table to form a total transition table

(c) Convert the total transition table into a primitive flow table

3) I'll give another example question:

Again, I think I'm just getting confused with transition tables here...A gated J-K latch is an asynchronous sequential logic circuit that is unstable when the J,K and G (gate) inputs are all at logic 1.(a) Derive the transition table and show that this is so, and

(b) How would you overcome this?

So yeah if I could get any help on any of the above examples I'd appreciate it a lot!!
