Floating Point Conversion
[Back] With floating point representation, we have a Sign, a Mantessa and an Exponent. A typical format is:
SEEE EEEE EMMM MMMM MMMM MMMM MMMM MMMM
As an example if we have S of 0, the exponent of 0000 0111, and Mantessa of 1100. We then get:
Value is (2^7) * (0.5 * 1) + (0.25* 1) +(0.125 * 1) which is equal to 128 * 0.875 which is thus: 112.
