What is computing power?

The efficiency of the computers is reliant on the computing power of the unit. The central processing unit (CPU) has different components among them an electronic clock. The job of the electronic clock is to create electric pulses at various intervals. The pulses allow the $#$#0$#$# to synchronize different components while determining the speed in which different calculations can be done in the computer as well as pulling data from the memory. The ratings of every processor are in terms of the speeds that the electronic clock can manage. If for example a processor is rated at 3.0 Gigahertz it means that the clock is capable of sending 3 billion pulses per second. Through over-clocking, the clock speed can be throttled to achieve

The output in Boolean algebra must either be a 1 or a 0 to be compatible with the binary number system requirements (Sharma, 2007). Starting with addition of the base numbers;

0 + 0= 0

0 + 1 = 1

1 + 0 = 1

1 + 1 = 1

While the first three additions are identical to the results that adding the integers would make, the last one is contrary to the expected result. The result is because the ideal result of 2 would be beyond the limit of the results expected in a binary system. Boolean method uses an elimination method that determines that an addition of 1+1 would not be zero implying that the result then shifts to 0. The addition in Boolean algebra of

0 + 1 + 1 = 1

1 + 1 + 1 = 1 corresponds to an OR gate that is represented in a parallel switches. The Boolean algebra is also used to demonstrate the AND and NOT gates represented by multiplication and complementation.
