I am trying to understand how to convert from decimal to IEEE-754 Single Precision binary representation.
I make up a random number which happen to be 601.00
I tried my best to figure it out and this is what I got:
Step 01: I divided 601 by 9 (since 2^9 is the largest power of 2 divisible by my number) so I got 66.7778
Step 02: I have for the exponent 9 + 127 = 136 which is 10001000 in binary. Step 03: The sign is 0
Right now the representation is: (missing the mantissa) 0 10001000
But what is the mantissa representation for 66.7778 in binary?
