1
Data Representation

2
Units & Prefixes Review kilo, mega, and giga are different in binary! bit (b) – binary digit Byte (B) – 8 binary digits KiloByte (KB) – 2 10 bytes MegaByte (MB) – 2 20 bytes GigaByte (GB) – 2 30 bytes

3
Data Representation EVERYTHING on the computer is represented using binary Integers Characters Strings Colors

4
Data Representation If we have 2 bits, how many different binary numbers can we make? 00, 01, 10, 11 And if we had 3? How about 4? Umm...32? A unique binary string/number represents a single thing # of bits required for representation depends on the number of symbols/measurements

5
How many combinations? Each bit can only be a 0 or 1 (2 choices) The number of distinct combinations of n-bits is given by 2 n

6
Character Representation Standardized codes ASCII (American) Unicode (international characters) ASCII Example: ASCII Table ASCII Table ASCII Binary Converter ASCII Binary Converter

7
String Representation Simple character strings are just sequences of characters Hexadecimal Example: is used to terminate (end) the string

8
Pixel and Color Depth Pixel ~ Picture element What does an image look like when we zoom in? What does an image look like when we zoom in? An image is a matrix of numbers Numbers ~ Colors Number of bits restricts the number colors we can use (pixel/color depth)pixel/color depth GIF vs. JPEG vs. RAW

9
Hexadecimal Colors RGB ~ Red, Green, Blue 8-bits used per color (24 bits total) Each color can be represented using 2 hexadecimal digits (0-9, A-F) Examples: Red = FF0000 Green = 00FF00 How many total colors are there?

10
Additional Items (not required) Signed and unsigned integers i.e. negative numbers Floating-point numbers
