In this computer, numbers are stored in 12-bits. We will also assume that for a floating point (real) number, 6 bits of these bits are reserved for the mantissa (or significand) with 2^(k-1)-1 as the exponent bias (where k is the number of bits for the characteristic).
What pair of floating point numbers could be represented by these 24-bits?
I have gone this far:
As described above that each number is of 12 bit so we get each number
First one is 0 bit so it is positive and
Mantissa will be 100110
Exponent will be 11100b=28
my unbiased exponent will be 2^(28-15)=2^13
How to find the floating point number from here?
