In Section 2.4 you saw how to find the 2's complement representation of any given positive or negative denary integer, but it is also useful to be able to find the additive inverse of a 2's complement integer without going into and out of denary. For instance, 1111Â 1100 (âˆ’4) is the additive inverse, or 2's complement, of 0000Â 0100 (+4), but how does one find the additive inverse without converting both binary integers to their denary equivalents?

One of the characteristics of 'good' information is that it should be balanced and present both sides of an argument or issue. This way the reader is left to weigh up the evidence and make a decision. In reality, we recognise that no information is truly objective.

Knowing about particular genes, or their effects, also permits screening â€“ the search in a population for persons with certain genotypes that are associated with a particular disease. Thus the test may be offered to one and all. Until now, screening programmes have focused on one gene at a time, or one disease at a time, in cases where a mutated gene poses serious health problems and something can be done for those who are found to carry the mutation. What that something is varies with the
