## CELL DIVISION: BINARY FISSION AND MITOSIS

### Binary Fission: Cell Division & Reproduction of Prokaryotes

It's worth noting that I am * not* an expert on this matter. Since
writing this article, I've found another one - this time written by
someone who really * is* an expert, Jeffrey Sax. I strongly
recommend that you read his
article on floating point concepts too.

In this step 101 is subtracted from 110. This step is also very easy to understand as we already know binary subtraction method. Now going into the next step. As of the rules of division the next least significant bit comes down and we try to multiply 1 with divider . B but the result is bigger than the minuend so this step cannot be completed and we have to go to the next step.

Binary arithmetic is one of those skills which you probably won't use very often. It can be very useful to know however. These processes are often stepping stones to more complex processes which can do very powerful things. Fortunately, they are not too difficult so with a bit of practice you'll be off and running in no time.

To convert a number from decimal to binary, write down the number at the top of a sheet of paper. Divide the number by 2, and write the remainder out to the side. If you are dividing an odd number, the remainder will be 1, and if it’s even, the remainder will be 0. After you divide the number, write the result on the next line, divide it by 2, and write down the remainder. Continue this until the quotient is 0. Starting at the bottom, write down all the remainders in order. This new number is the binary conversion of the decimal.

* **Reminder: 1 + 1 = 10***

A bit (short for binary digit) is the smallest unit of data on a computer; each bit has a single value of either 1 or 0. Executable (ready-to-run) programs are often identified as binary files and given a file name extension of ".bin.” Programmers often call executable files * binaries* .

Just as in decimal division, we can compare the four most significant bits of the dividend (., 1100) with the divisor to find the first digit of the quotient. We are working with binary numbers, so the digits of the quotient can be either zero or one.

1010000/1011 using Binary Modulo 2 Division remainder is 011. 80/11 remainder =3. I know how to do it in binary but how can I calculate above result using decimal values 80 and 11.

The binary system is a numerical system that functions virtually identically to the decimal number system that people are likely more familiar with. While the decimal number system uses the number 10 as its base, the binary system uses 2. Furthermore, although the decimal system uses the digits 0 through 9, the binary system uses only 0 and 1, and each digit is referred to as a bit. Apart from these differences, operations such as addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division are all computed following the same rules as the decimal system.

Binary Division The good news is that binary division is a lot easier than decimal division. Instead of having to guess how many times our divisor fits into the working dividend (which can get complicated if the numbers involved are large), in binary division the answer will either be 0 or 1.
