HELP HELP HELP! History test! (Part 1 of 2)?

I am far behind and I really need help with this unit assignment so I can move on to work on the rest. I have 2 weeks of school left and many other classes I have to do so I don’t want to hear your half ass excuses about what it was like to live without computers and that I should do my own homework, I’m stressed, I’m on wits end, and I’m liable to go postal so either answer or keep your fucking mouths SHUT!

Thank you.

David asks…

What type of dog should I get?

First time dog owner

Lap/House Dog (at least a dog that sleeps in the house instead of outside)

Life Expectancy: 10 years+

Size: Small – Large (Max would be the same size as a Golden Retriever_

My Living Conditions: House with medium yard (But might change bcause I’m moving to another state where I may have to end up living in anything but an actual house (maybe an apartment)

Grooming: Minimum of weekly brushing and baths or dry shampoo’s (low to moderate maintenance)

Exercise: Maximum of 4 days per week

Intelligence: At least fairly easy to train, but doesn’t have to be a quick learner

Playfulness: I don’t mind throwing some balls, playing with chew toys, etc.

Cold & Heat Tolerance: I’m trying to move to New York within 2 years, I’ll let that speak for itself lol

Friendly to strangers & other pets

I like affection, doesn’t have to be major, but I would like for the dog to show at least some type of affection.

Not too much barking (as maybe a chihuahua would)

No need for protection

No need for being alerted or for warning of intruders

Can be taken on vacations (I’d prefer to take it with me instead of letting someone keep/watch it)

I’m understanding to all puppies being playful and energetic, I’m fine with that. But I want the type of dog to eventually be okay with being like a coach potato or something lol

I prefer a dog that doesn’t drool too much

I’ve already tried doing quizzes, they weren’t detailed enough

I wanted to get either a golden retriever or a german shepard/st bernard mixed. Are these dogs fit for me, or should I get another kind?

Justin answers:

If you are moving into an apartment, i would avoid anything larger dogs. I would call Retrievers, Labs and GSDs all larger dogs. Medium is what youre after… Or smaller.

Staffordshire Bull Terrier
These are lovely natured, medium sized and medium active dogs. They do get excited but not overly hyper (like some spaniels are prone to…) their coats are short and easy to keep clean. They are quite strong and can join on long runs quite happily, or just keep chasing sticks! Theyre often given a bad name because they look like American Pit Bulls, but are seriously lovely animals. Promise! And they are the CUTEST puppies ever!

Miniature Poodle
Ok ok.. Stop laughing. These dogs dont get a fair trial! The standard poodle is the third most intelligent breed out there, and they are originally bred to be water gun dogs. So just as trainable and friendly as retrievers are. They just have low street cred because of the ridiculous hair cuts people give them for shows! Which are actually functional for swimming, but no one ever sees them in water! Both Miniature and Toy poodles are great company, happy to go on walks, happy to sit indoors and lounge with you. Ideal for apartment living and super intelligent, so you can easily train them. And their hair doesnt shed like others do! Less cleaning! Theyre known for being good for allergy sufferers because of this.

Cairn Terrier
These dogs are great apartment dogs too, but are less… Ermm… Girly?! Than poodles. Now, the downside is that they have quite stubborn little personalities and can sometimes be difficult to train. But I have met loads of exceptions to this rule, so i firmly recommend them as lovely wee dogs. They have some grooming requirements, but unless they are running about in long grass fields… Brushing and trimming should be minimal. They are prone to being barky though… (as are most terriers – its just their nature, as rabbiters)

Red Setter (or Irish Setter)
These dogs are drop dead gorgeous and ive never met an angry one yet. They love a good run about and I think would be the biggest dog that you could manage in an apartment. Grooming is minimal, but they have such lovely coats, its hard to stop brushing them. Lovely dogs and even tempered personalities. Cant get distracted by things whilst off the lead… So make sure you invest time in training before you unhook the lead!

3. Convert the hexadecimal numeral CB to a binary numeral.

-Any help would be greatly appreciated

Justin answers:

I’m not sure if you wanted help on the other problems – so I will just focus on your question. Remember like the more familiar decimal system the hexadecimal and binary systems obey the same rules. Units, tens, hundreds, thousands columns and so on. The difference lies in the actual value of those columns. So when converting from one base to another the first step is to write out the columns with the value above it. E.g.

Hexadecimal…..|……Binary
256………………|..2048./.2^11
100s…………….|..1024./.2^10
16^2……………..|…512./.2^9
————————|..256./.2^8

16………………..|…128./.2^7
10s………………|….64../.2^6
16^1……………..|….32../.2^5
————————|…16../.2^4

Units…………….|.8../.2^3
1s………………..|.4../.2^2
16^0……………..|.2../.2^1
————————|.1../.2^0

Once you’ve set the values place the number according to there placeholder. Keep in mind in Hexadecimal 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, & 15 are represented by A, B, C, D, E, F respectively.

Hexadecimal…..|……Binary
256………………|..2048./.2^11
100s…………….|..1024./.2^10
16^2……………..|…512./.2^9
————————|..256./.2^8

16…………C……|…128./.2^7
10s………………|….64../.2^6
16^1……………..|….32../.2^5
————————|…16../.2^4

Units…….B…….|..8../.2^3
1s………………..|..4../2^2
16^0……………..|..2../.2^1
————————|..1../.2^0

Therefore ‘C’ = 12 x 16 or 192 and ‘B’ = 11 in the decimal/base ten system. By adding 192 + 11 we find it is 203 base 10. To change CB directly to base 2 or Binary is much easier because 16 is a multiple of 2. 2^4 = 16. So each placeholder in Hexadecimal is equal to four placeholders in Binary. In other words – in Binary 1111 = 1+2+4+8=15 in decimal or F in hexadecimal. In this case ‘B’ = 1011 = 1+2+8=11 in decimal. For ‘C’ I will prove both ways. In Binary 1100=12 in decimal which is the same as the ’12’ in 12 x 16 = 192 so placing these two binary quartets side by side CB = 11001011 in Binary. Going back to our number line.

Hexadecimal…..|……Binary
256………………|..2048./.2^11
100s…………….|..1024./.2^10
16^2……………..|…512./.2^9
————————|..256./.2^8

16…………C……|128./.2^7.1×128+
10s….12 x 16.=.|.64./.12^6.1×64+
16^1……192+….|.32./.2^5…0x0+
———–..+..——.|.16./.2^4..0×0
…………………………=192+

Units…….B…….|.8../.2^3.1×8+
1s……….11…….|.4../.2^2.0×0+
16^0…….=………|.2../.2^1.1×2+
………….203……|.1../.2^0.1×1
……………………..=11=203

You may find one method easier but it is best to know both so you can independently recheck your answer.

I hope this helps
