Calculators are not permitted during the first midterm test. You will
benefit from knowing the powers of two from 2**(-4) to 2**16 and the
decimal and binary values of the hexadecimal digits from zero to fifteen.
Of course you can work them out; however, having at least some of them
memorized will make things go faster for you on the test.
(Remember that hexadecimal "A" = decimal 10 = binary 1010.)
