Unformatted text preview: de by 0? Modulus with 0? W hat happens to the b inary-c alc ulator program? W hy might this be a
good thing? (Hint: remember the lab introduc tion?)
6. Ex c luding divis ion by 0, c harac teriz e the behavior of the modulus operation for pos itive and negative divis ors and dividends
(for a total of 2x 2 = 4 c ombinations ).
To c ontinue with the res t of this as s ignment, y ou need lec ture 4. Save y our work now and finis h the res t of this as s ignment
after lec ture 4 or after y ou watc h the video lec ture/lec ture notes Floating point
Run the following c omputations in s ingle-prec is ion (32-bit) floating-point mode:
1. 1000 + 1 2.
9. 11 / 3
100 - 0.25
100 - 0.3
-100 + 0.3
9000 + 0.0001 - 9005
9000 - 9005 + 0.0001
9000 + 0.01
9000 * 0.01 Ans wer the following ques tions in lab2.tx t:
1. W hy is there an error in the fourth c omputation, but not the third? (Hint: how do y ou enc ode 0.25 and 0.3 in floating point?)
2. How does the res ult of the fifth c omputation c omp...
