    I think I found an error.. The text says "A binary number can be either big-endian, where the most-significant digit is the left-most, or little-endian which we’ll use in this tutorial (and you’ll usually see binary numbers written this way)."

    In your examples, and typical representation of binary, the left-most digits are most significant (128,64...2,1) but you say you're using little endian in this tutorial, which doesn't seem to be correct..

      This got me confused too. It does seem to be little-endian though, with the LSB in the largest memory address and the MSB in the smallest memory address. Clarifications will be helpful. Thanks!
