Hey, this my seem funny, but it seem I found a problem I can't deal with myself. It is : What is the two's complement value of the sixteen bit number 0x34D2?

I would be grateful for any advice.
Thanks.

0xcb2e

The 2's complement of a hex number is its 1's complement (i.e. all bits flipped) + 1. The ones complement of 0x34d2 is 0xcb2d, so the 2's complement is 0xcb2e.
