Unit 1 Lesson 5

So, the wrap up discussion states: Ultimately, regardless of the size of our odometer or Flippy Do Pro, and how many bits we add to them, there’s going to be numbers that are too large, too small, or “in-between” the values we want to represent.

I think this is misleading… you COULD represent these numbers if you could make your odometer or flippy do as big as you wanted… isn’t the final takeaway that you can’t represent ANY number with a limited number of bits? Which is what causes the overflow etc.?

Just want to make sure I’m clear on this

@yanet.cabrera. Thanks for posting this question. Here is a link to a discussion about this lesson [ link ]. I hope the points made will shed some light about your concern.
