| | Each increase in value occurs, till the value of the largest **number** in the set is reached (9), at which stage the next value is the smallest in the set (0) and a new value is generated in the left column (ie, the next value after 9 is 10). |

| | When a **number** of bits is used to store values, the most significant bit [the bit which has the greatest value, in the left most column] is used to store the sign [positive or negative] of the **number**. |

| | Another way of generating a 2's complement **number** is to start at the least significant bit, and copy down all the 0's till the first 1 is reached. |
