I have a simple question about converting from signed magnitude representation to signed 2's complement.
I have no difficulty converting, for example, the signed magnitude 5-bit binary number 00100 (4 in base 10) to signed 2's complement, because it is 00100. Likewise, the signed magnitude 5-bit binary number 10001 (-1 in base 10) is 11111 in signed 2's complement.
What I don't understand is how the signed binary number 10000 (this would be -0, correct?) is converted to 2's complement. Can anyone offer some insight? Thank you.
