What Is BCD Arithmetic ?

- BCD is a binary code of the ten decimal digits. It is not a binary equivalent.
- To perform BCD addition

- Add the BCD digits as regular binary numbers.
- If the sum is 9 or less and no carry was generated, it is a valid BCD digit.
- If the sum produces a carry, the sum is invalid and the number 6 (0110) must be added to the digit.
- If the sum is greater than nine, the sum is invalid and the number 6 (0110) must be added to the digit.
- Repeat for each of the BCD digits.
