suppose that we have following binary digits
$00011001.110 $,we can do following thing
then what does means?
We then “float” the binary point:
$00011001.110 \Rightarrow 1.1001110 \cdot 2^4 $
mantissa = 1.1001110, exponent = 4
i did not understand this part,generally for sign we have $1$ bit,for exponent we have $8$ bit and for mantissa we need $23$ bit,so i can't understand last part,from floating to binary point,please help me
