I am stuck with a problem,
Now here is the formula applied to a question,
The red colored bits show the exponent(e) while, the yellow bits are fraction (f). Now I am confused with how did the author convert the fraction (f) into 1-2^(-23). I understand that he has converted from binary to decimal to get this value but how do I convert such a big number from binary to decimal?
One trick that my teacher told me was to convert from binary to hexadecimal and then convert the value to decimal easily. But doing that has given me a value
8388607 which is not equal to
1 - 2 ^(-23)
