signed:
byte ---> -128 to +127
unsigned
char ---> 0 to +65535
-------------------------------------------------
the two's complement:
(working with bytes)
decimal binary
4 ---- 00000100
-4 ---- 11111100
how did I find that -4 was 11111100??
1)invert all bits:
00000100 becomes 11111011
2)add another bit to the end
11111011 + 1 --> 11111100

ok???
