Welcome back - i was going to send a note later in the week to check up. . .

I'm a college student and have no one I can see in-person to help me with this
They don't provide tutors or mentors (only difference i saw between tutors and mentors was that we mentors did not get $)? Lots of big universities (when IT was better taught) provided tutors the same as other courses.

I expect the input numbers will be zoned decimal. You would individually pack them and then convert to binary so you can use binary arithmetic instructions. Once the arithmetic has been done, the binary result will need to be converted back to packed decimal so that it may be properly shown (edited).
Hope this helps,
d.sch.
