Type: MCSA
In which instance is using a wireless device an advantage for health care provider staff?
1. More memory is needed to input data for glucose monitoring and insulin coverage.
2. Error reduction is needed to input data, such as vital signs from a client's isolation room.
3. A larger screen is needed to track data, such as medication administration times with vital signs.

1. PDAs may be synchronized with any network without the use of special equipment or software.
2. PDAs minimize the chance of interception of data transmission.
3. Current medication information may be easily stored and compared to actual client data.
4. Data loss is minimized due to long battery life and ease of backups.

1. A programming language such as Java to access the Internet
2. A virus checker to increase security for Internet connections
3. A programming language such as COBOL to create databases

3. Duties include assigning and monitoring system access identification codes and passwords
4. Duties include design, maintenance, and security of materials placed on the Internet, intranet, and extranet
Question 12
Type: MCSA
What is the one byte binary code representation for the Arabic number 8?
1. 1000
2. 00001000
3. 2222
Hebda, Handbook of Informatics, 5/e Test Bank

4. 11111111
8 + 0 + 0 + 0 = 8, so the correct choice for representing the Arabic number 8 is the binary code 00001000.
(Reference: textbook Figure 2-3 [Internal view of a PC] will show some items that may be inside a computer
cabinet.)
Rationale 3: Binary code is a series of 1s and 0s called bits, and one byte contains 8 bits. The binary system is
positional with each position's value increasing by the power of 2.
The right most position value is 20 or 1 and continuing to the left the values would be 21 = 2, 22 = 4, 23 = 8 and so
on. The Arabic number represented is the sum of the powers of 2 represented by the 0s and 1s. The sum of the
powers of binary 00001000 is 0 + 0 + 0 + 0 + 8 + 0 + 0 + 0 = 8, so the correct choice for representing the Arabic
number 8 is the binary code 00001000. The numeral 2 is not used in writing binary code.

cabinet.)
Rationale 4: Binary code is a series of 1s and 0s called bits, and one byte contains 8 bits. The binary system is
positional with each position's value increasing by the power of 2.
The right most position value is 20 or 1 and continuing to the left the values would be 21 = 2, 22 = 4, 23 = 8 and so
on. The Arabic number is the sum of the powers of 2 represented by the 0s and 1s. The sum of the powers of
binary 11111111 is 128 + 64 + 32 + 16 + 8 + 4 + 2 + 1 = 255. The sum of the powers of binary 00001000 is 0 + 0
+ 0 + 0 + 8 + 0 + 0 + 0 = 8, so the correct choice for representing the Arabic number 8 is the binary code
00001000.
