(10%) Precision. (a) Suppose a number is converted from IEEE single precision to IEEE double precision floating point. Will the value of the number ever change? If not, explain why not. If so, give two distinct types of values changes that can occur. The value will never change because the values that can be represented exactly in single precision are a subset of the values that can be represented in double precision. (b) Suppose a number is converted from IEEE double precision to IEEE single precision floating point. Will the value of the number ever change? If not, explain why not. If so, give two distinct types of values changes that can occur.

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
