Table 1-2. Decimal and Binary Comparison
MSD and LSD
When youre determining the MSD and LSD for binary numbers, use the same guidelines you used
with the decimal system. As you read from left to right, the first nonzero digit you encounter is the MSD,
and the last nonzero digit is the LSD.
If the number is a whole number, then the first digit to the left of the radix point is the LSD.
