i need to express 358 in binary single floating point format using excess 4 notation...i can do it easily using the 32-bit standard representation with the excess 127 exponent. i know that 358 is 101100110 therefore i assume floating point would be 1.01100110 with an exponent of 8. i know excess 4 is the base exponent added to 4 but 8+4=12 which cannot be represented with 4 bits. any help would be greatly appreciated! thanks.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
