CSE 1311 3 Review Integers Review Integers Integer notation is a binary number. Beginning from the right most bit is the lowest power of 2. If the column is a 1, the value is summed. If the column is a 0, the value is dropped. 101010 is 1*32+0*16+1*8+0*4+1*2+0*1 101010 is 42

CSE 1311 4 Binary Representations Binary Representations Binary representations of floating point are not based on some key principle of mathematics There are dozens of methods or protocols that can be used to define a float. For this lecture, we will be examining a 32 bit floating point representation in binary.
CSE 1311 5 Binary Representation Binary Representation The way the binary representation works is that a set of rules has been made to describe how a binary number can be translated into an floating point number. In this case, the binary number can be broken into three parts.

CSE 1311 6 Introduction to Floats Introduction to Floats Each float will be of 32 bits divided into three sections: The Sign Bit, The Exponent, and The Mantissa Each of these terms will now be defined, and then how they are assembled will be the next step.
CSE 1311 7 The Sign Bit The Sign Bit As with integers, the sign bit is the first, leftmost bit of the float A value of 1 is: [0] 0111111110000000000000000000000 A value of -1 is: [1] 0111111110000000000000000000000
