    Hello to everyone,

    I have to draw a logic circuit with the above data:

    Input: 2 two-bit signed binary numbers in two's complement format. (eg A(a1a0) and B(b1b0))
    Output: a number Z (in two's complement format, also). Z= AxB (multiplication) if at least an input number is negative. In any other case Z = A + B (addition)

    I'm trying to find what is the min amount of bits for the output.

    So, if the input is A=10 and B=10, we have output Z = 0100. So, I think that the output should be 4bit (in two's complement) binary number.

    Am I on the right direction?

    yes you're on the right direction, -2 * -2 = 4, so four bits will be the maximum you'll need. sounds good
