No one?
I tried to solve it with a proof by contradiction:
or
So I assumed that there are two possible representations of x. Now I have to show that there is a contradiction.
But I have no idea how to do something like that.
Any help?

Hi there!
I need help with a proof that the Two's Complement's representation is unique -> There are no two representations of a number.
The following formula describes the Two's Complement: ,
where is the value of the binary number . n is the number of digits. For example:
.
So the (decimal) is (binary; one zero, not ten) in the Two's Complement representation.
I tried proving it with a proof by contradiction, but I didn't get very far.
Any help?
Thanks in advance,
BS
