I'm trying to convert a 16 bit precision binary number to decimal format however I am completely failing to do so.
The binary I'm trying to convert is $0101011101010000$ My current method is:
Sign = 0
Mantissa = $1.1101010000$
Exponent = $21 - (2^4 - 1) = 6 $
Mantissa Denormalised = $1110101.0000$
This gives an answer of 117. Is this actually correct or am I making a mistake in my method?
