I would now like to know how to convert a value in base2 scientific notation (is that the correct terminology?), say 1.93 * 2 ^ 88, into the form of A * 10 ^ B.
I want to do this without expressing the first form as a complete number and converting it back to the 2nd form.
I can get by exponent by doing 88 * (ln2 / ln10) = 26.49...
So I have A * 10 ^ 26 now.
How can I solve for A?
Complete equation: 1.93 * 2 ^ 88 = A * 10 ^ 26.
