IEEE 754 32 bit representation for reference:- 1. For the demoralized numbers,why the exponent is -126 and not -127? For 0 we say it is Mantissa=0 and B.E=0, so we get 0*2^0-127=0,but for any number that is having bias exponent as 0 and Mantissa non ... 127 and +128) comes under overflow and underflow condition.I mean if i am 0 or infinity or NAN then can i say that system is overflow/underflow?

Are the following statements true? 1. If Biased Exponent > Bias ,then Actual exponent is +ve. 2. If Biased Exponent < Bias ,then Actual exponent is -ve. Please tell reason also,as per me both should be false as Biased is already maximum positive number,adding something to it will cause overflow.So 1st should be -ve and second should be +ve,Please correct if I am wrong

IN FLOATING POINT REPRESENTATION WE KNOW THAT BIAS ADDED IS THE MAXIMUM NUMBER WHICH CAN BE REPRESENTED IN 2S COMPLEMENT. Suppose exponent is represented using 8 bits, so bias added= (2^7)-1=127. But the max negative number representable with 8 bits is -128 and adding ... negative. So how do we get postitive exponent by biassing in this case??. It sounds confusing to me. Plz resolve my confusion.
