Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0just for binary, the number if bits is \[\lceil \log_{2}(56392) \rceil = 16\] For 2's compliment, add 1. (This matches the well known limits for 16bit signed/unsigned values; maximum 16bit unsigned = 2¹⁶1 = 65535, maximum 16bit signed = 2¹⁵1 = 32767. 56392 can be expressed in a 16bit unsigned value, but not in a 16bit signed value.)
