Now, we find the exponent The power of 2 used above was -4, and the bias for the single-precision format is 127. Thus, exponent=−4+127=123=01111011binary Then, we write the fraction in binary formSuccessive multiplications by 2 (while temporarily ignoring the unit's digit) quickly yields the binary form:0.36 x 2 = 0.720.72 x 2 = 1.440.44 x 2 = 0.880...
