Unformatted text preview: Ü is an integer, Ý and Ý is an integral power of 2. Examples include: 0, , and ¾½ . The integer value of the exponent. The numeric value represented. Use the notation Ü or Ü ¢ ¾Þ , where Ü and Þ are integers. Î: As an example, to represent the number ¾ , we would have × ¼, Å , and ½. Our number would therefore have an exponent ﬁeld of 0x40 (decimal value ¿ · ½ ) and a signiﬁcand ﬁeld 0xC0 (binary ½½¼¼¼¼¼¼¾ ), giving a hex representation 40C0. You need not ﬁll in entries marked “—”. Description Hex

You realize that the best way to do this is to directly construct the IEEE singleprecision representation of the result. When Ü is too small, your routine will return ¼ ¼. When Ü is too large, it will return ·½. Fill in the blank portions of the followin...
