[1.5 x 4 = 6 marks]

i)    0xAD9 into 3-base representation

ii)   4518 into 2-base (binary) representation

iii) 123.35 into octal representation (up to 3 octal points)

iv)  14.358 into decimal representation

Question 2. 

 Write a MARIE program that accepts an integer from the user, and if it is a prime number the program will output 1, otherwise, the program will output 0. 


If the user input is 17, the output would be 1

If the user input is 2, the output would be 1

If the user input is 15, the output would be 0

If the user input is -2, the output would be 0

You should write and run the program using MARIE simulator. Add enough comments to understand your code.

You do not have to include the .mas file in the submission. Instead, the code should be presented as a word-processed section in the assignment, not as an image. 

Insert images to show you have tested the code with several possibilities.
