U5L8 Create a Representation - Exemplar

csd-unit-5-lesson-8

#1

I have a question about the exemplar. It says that he reads Lila in the character section of the punch card and I cannot figure out how they got that.

Any help would be appreciated!


#2

This is the section I was talking about.

Khawk,

Great question - if you covert lines 3 and 4 to binary (01101100 and 01101001), then converting to decimals equals 108 and 105, then using an ASCII chart it equals l and i. But lines 5 and 6 are backwards - meaning that if you convert to binary using the opposite method (dark square is a 1 and blank square is a 0) you get 01101100 and 01100001 which is 108 and 97 or l and a - but the methods are inconsistent. I’ll bump this to the ops team and can you possibly put in a bug report?

Thanks!

Brad
