I am having difficulty in converting 29 and 0.7 to IEEE single precision floating point.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

For 29,

I represent 29 as a product of a power of 2 using 58/4 * 2^{1}.

However, I am having trouble getting the mantissa value because 58/4 is 14.5, and I need something in the format of 1.[numbers]. Any help would be great, thanks.

For 0.7,

I do not know how I would represent 0.7 as a product of a power of 2 because there is no exact binary number representation for 0.7. Any help would be great, thanks.
