 Feb 17 comment What is the simplest way to create $n$ steps for a loop? @JohnJoy You're right Feb 17 comment What is the simplest way to create $n$ steps for a loop? @GerryMyerson Look at my first example ( (i-(i%3))/3). I didnt use any complex function and still got the right result. Feb 17 comment What is the simplest way to create $n$ steps for a loop? @GerryMyerson I want to use ( if it's possible) +,-,*,/,%,^, . Round ,truncate , Ceil , floor are "complex" functions. which im trying to avoid. Apr 10 comment Power calculation for simplification? offline - are you familier with floating point representation ? Apr 10 comment Power calculation for simplification? I meant this : (6.805647-0.000000406)*10^38 - but I get my confusion - it's not a power but a magnitude of 10 which is why this is legit Apr 10 comment Power calculation for simplification? does X^y-Z^y==(X-Z)^y ???? Apr 10 comment Power calculation for simplification? But then , again I get 4.056*10^31 - 4.056^(31)... which is not a single value..... Apr 9 comment Max value - Mantissa calculation clarification? huh??? how does Mm is close to 2^128 ? Mm is 1.11111111111111111111111 ....no ? Apr 9 comment Power calculation for simplification? this (1+x)^n => 1+nx is amazing. I didnt know that. Apr 9 comment Max value - Mantissa calculation clarification? Hi. I want to continue the result of 2^(128)-2^(104) into this pattern : y*x^(m) - and I see you got this by actual calculating. but how can I do it without calculating the large number ? I just want the result 3.4*10^38 is there anyway yo to get this number( or close enough) without calculating it ? Apr 8 comment Max value - Mantissa calculation clarification? Well , didnt know who's Goldberg is , now I know and i'm certainly going to print and read this article. thank you very much for your knowledge , help and patience. p.s. do you write this styled math syntax symbols automatically from your head? or is there a tool ? Apr 8 comment Max value - Mantissa calculation clarification? Except the reserved places , which I understand , ( and i did got it wrong - with the 254 , thank you for correcting me) , what was their problem that they decided to use bias ? was it to prevent using 2's complement ? Apr 8 comment Max value - Mantissa calculation clarification? Sorry to re-ask . but - I hve a question about the 254. with 8 bits - the max value is 256-1=>255. Now , wikipedia says that 0 and 255 are reserved. so , 255-2(specials)=255-2=253. where is the 254 comes from ? Apr 7 comment Max value - Mantissa calculation clarification? Now i'm really confused.where the 254−127 came from? Apr 7 comment Max value - Mantissa calculation clarification? p.s. you one line before last has an error : it's x 2^(128) and not 2^127. becuase (2^8)-1=255 => 255-127 = 128 Apr 7 comment Max value - Mantissa calculation clarification? Exactly like my edit. 1 more question please. how did they calc that it's equal to 6.8 × 10^38 ? Apr 7 comment Max value - Mantissa calculation clarification? @gammatester read my edit Apr 7 comment Max value - Mantissa calculation clarification? @gammatester I dont understand why the 2-__ ? can you elaborate more please ? Nov 14 comment significant figure representation? But if I see merely 1300 - should i conclude it has 2 SF ? Jun 22 comment infinity understanding problem? "possible "....i meant.....sorry.
