I'm not sure if this is the right place to post this but anyway...

I was given this assignment on binary numbers. The object is to pinpoint the location of this certain doughnut that is in this set of doughtnuts and it's divided in 4 sets of 4. Like this:

OO OO

OO OO

OO OO

QO OO

The Q being the doughnut that i need to pinpoint. Now I have to locate this doughnut using a binary code and can only be a maximum of 5-bits. The question it says is "devise two code schemes for pinpointing the location of the blue (Q) doughnut with the MSB (Most significant bit) giving the order of directions." I'm not entirely sure what that means, and while this may be a stupid question, what exactly is a code scheme? I'm new at this, and it'd be great if someone could help me with it. Thanks in advance.
