|Assignment: #BlytheCA||Due: 03/08/02018||Points: 3|
This note contains driving directions between Tempe, Arizona, and Blythe, California, using the binary (base-2) number system.
From Guadalupe and Price roads in Tempe, drive north 1102 miles on Loop-Binary5. Go west about 10102 miles on Loop-110010102 until it merges into I-Binary2. Head west on I-Binary2 for approximately 100100102 miles to Blythe, California.
Note: The notation Binary8 implies to write 8 in base-2 (i.e. 1000). Another example: Binary3 implies to write 3 in base-2 (i.e. 11).
Rewrite the driving directions using decimal (base-10) numbers rather than binary numbers.
Record, in binary (base-2), the total miles driven round-trip Tempe to Blythe to Tempe.
The Loop-101 that is just west of the SCC campus would be the Loop-______ if 101 (base-10) was converted into octal.

Compufoo's Pi Day 2018 celebration took him to Blythe, California, and he found a great breakfast burrito spot and an outstanding mural.
