your value and or apply any field axioms. So, I guess what I'm trying to

understand is how 11111 and 111111 are equivalent. ;)Because you're still thinking in Flip Flops. There's no rule saying you can't use 5bits. Also, you don't need any hardware to use Binary math -- paper works just fine -- or to make this joke work ;)I think the term "Field Axiom" in number theory can be misconstrued - the word 'Field' doesn't elude to Flip-Flops, thus, octal or hex coding. The origin is called Axioms whenever you postulate when using math.=Dan On Nov 1, 2011 4:33 PM, <system@...> wrote:
