What are steps for multiplication by repeated addition?
« on: May 21, 2019, 01:23:29 AM »

Hi everyone,

I'm not asking for a code. I just need someone to tell the steps in plain English.
Thank you

a=b*c: move c into b, then repeat addition of c n-1 times.

Hi,

   Seven times five is equal to five plus five plus five plus five plus
five plus five plus five.

Cheers,

Let's say you're multiplying 00000011 and 00010110 :

result = 00000110 + 00001100 + 00110000

As you can see you only replace each 1 in the second number with the whole first number and sum them together. This would be my approach however...
I bit a bit,
got bites from bytes.
I'll ram'em back in their RAM
and machine-gun the shit out of their f*in machine...
