Question #22176

create a c++ program that performs multiplication and division of binary and hexadecimal.
sample output:
number system
1. binary
2. hexadecimal
enter your choice: 1
enter first binary number: 1011
enter second binary number: 11
arithmetic operation
1. multiplication
2. division
enter your choice: 1
result: 100001

Expert's answer

#include <iostream>

#include <bitset>

#include <limits>

using namespace std;

/* mutiplication using the binary shift operator */

int multiplication(int mul, int by)

{

int result = 0;

if (by > 0)

{

// mulitiply by (mulby) comparison for when to add a shifted value to the

result.

// moveby, how many shifts left to shift by if there is a match.

int mulby = 2, moveby = 1;

while (by >= mulby)

{

cout << "by = " <<

bitset<numeric_limits<short>::digits>(by) << endl;

cout << "mulby = " <<

bitset<numeric_limits<short>::digits>(mulby) << endl;

// bitwise add and if it is the same value as the mulby then add to the result.

if ((by & mulby) == mulby) {

cout << "+ result= " <<

bitset<numeric_limits<short>::digits>((mul << moveby))

<< endl;

result += mul << moveby;

cout << "result = " <<

bitset<numeric_limits<short>::digits>(result) << endl;

}

mulby = mulby << 1; // the next test if the bits values are the same.

moveby++; // move the result by

}

// and if there is a modulus of 1 from 2 then the value was odd.

if (by % 2 == 1)

{

result += mul;

}

cout << "end result = " <<

bitset<numeric_limits<short>::digits>(result) << endl;

}

return result;

}

int main ()

{

cout << multiplication(6,7) << endl;

return 0;

}
