**Homework Statement::**We have an 8-bit floating point representation, one bit for the sign, 3-bit biased exponent, and 4-bit for the normalized mantissa. What is the smallest and largest number you can represent?

**Relevant Equations::**-

Would the smallest number just be

0 | 0 | 0 | 0 | 0 | 0 | 0 | 0 |

And then would the largest number just be

0 | 1 | 1 | 1 | 1 | 1 | 1 | 1 |

Or am I on the wrong track?

Thanks.
