Consider the following IEEE single precision format
A fractional number X is stored as (80700000)16. The decimal equivalent of X is ______.
@ Mk Utkarsh How do you justify your answer?
If all the exponent bits are zero then it would be 1.M * B^(E-127)
Here E would become 0. It doesnt make whole equation 0
check special values section
Acc to single precision format as E=0, M ~=0 then use fraction form:
here we have convert the number to base 2 using 4 digits because of base 8.
Now first 1 bit is sign bit and next 8 bits are Exponent and remaining bits are M.
You can convert fraction number to decimal (0.875).
