    Hello!
    I've started working with assembly language, with simulator LC-2, for a while!
    now I'm trying to write a program that multiplies a number by -6 . I've got the right code for multiplying it by 6, and then I was trying to inverse the sign of the result of that to get the answer if it was multiplied by -6. so I did the same code as if its multiplied by 6, and then the final result of that was stored in register R3, so to get the result of multiplying the same number with -6, I was trying to get the negative of R3 so I wrote: NOT R3, R3 which means NOT R3 and store the result in itself! so say my number was 4 and I wanted 4x-6=-24, so I got 24 and then inverted its sign to get -24 but then simulating this in LC-2 gave me -25 !!!
    do u know why? and what do I have 2 do 2 fix it??
    aside: by the way do u know whats -6 in hexadecimal?

    thanx in advance
    regards....
