I googled for about 1 month on a topic of floating point numbers but didn't find what i want ... I need to know how to solve a quadratic equation using normalized floating point numbers.

Can anyone please explain it in detail with an example of quadratic equation.

  • $\begingroup$ Welcome! I suggest to give a concrete example that you are trying to solve, and show what you have tried so far for that - in that case, we could better understand how to help. $\endgroup$ – Yujie Zha Apr 28 '17 at 16:34
  • $\begingroup$ Thanks yujie.. i was trying to solve this question "find the solution of quadratic equation x² - 1000x + 25 using normalized floating point numbers." I really don't know how to solve it because i tried to learn these type of problems but didn't find any appropriate tutorial. Please help... $\endgroup$ – rajat kathuriya Apr 28 '17 at 16:54
