This question started with a quiz question from my university: Consider a big-endian computer system with an addressable cell size of one byte. The values in memory cells 372 to 375 are shown in the table below. What 16-bit two's complement value (expressed as a decimal number) is stored at address 374?
Address Value 372 0xC5 372 0x5E 374 0x7F 375 0x23
One thing I'm not clear about is what exactly does "addressable cell size of one byte" mean?
