What does it mean when you dream about being carried or carrying something?

If one is being carried in a dream, it can indicate nurturance or a sense of dependence. Alternatively, perhaps we are simply being “carried away” by some enthusiasm. If we are carrying something, it can represent an emotion, as in the expression “carrying a grudge.” We also talk about “carrying the day,” “carrying the ball,” or “carrying a torch” for someone.

carry

[′kar·ē]
(mathematics)
An arithmetic operation that occurs in the course of addition when the sum of the digits in a given position equals or exceeds the base of the number system; a multiple m of the base is subtracted from this sum so that the remainder is less than the base, and the number m is then added to the next-higher-order digit.

The constraint Q > [lambda] is required because we want to compute the bits of the Hamming weight by directly summing up without regard to the carry bits generated from the addition.
Then R_First_group' = {F_data[2:0] + [C_M.sub.#k]}, considering the carry bit [C_M.sub.#k-1]) generated by [M.sub.#(k-1)], if [C_M.sub.#(k-1)] [not equal to] 0, then it needs pass to [M.sub.#k].
Because b0 is 0, the multiplexers in the first row select aib0 as the sum bit and select 0 as the carry bit. The inputs are bypassed to FAs in the second rows, and the tristate gates turn off the input paths to the FAs.
For example, suppose the two initial values are 0 and 1, and the initial carry bit is 0.
