 We have found out that all the interval of possible values is from 0 to 4294967295. Therefore possible values start from 0 to the half of the maximum number and negative numbers go from the half to the end of the maximum number (where the maximum number is the smallest negative number module). Divide the maximum number by 2, which equals 4294967295 : 2 = 2147483647,​5. It means that positive values start from 0 to 2147483647 and negative —from 2147483648 to 4294967295. We have found out that all the interval of possible values is from 0 to 4294967295.
