ABSTRACT

<p>It is shown that, if a division is described by AQ=C, where A is the divisor, Q is the quotient, and C is the dividend, then the bit variables involved in a set of equations, each of which determines a leading bit of C, gives an approximation for Q that an be used in a SRT division scheme. The results of an exhaustive statistical simulation, using all possible combinations of two pairs of integers 12 b in length, in normalized form, representing A and C are presented to validate the method.</p>
