What is the maximum number that can be written in two bytes in floating point format?
June 28, 2021
A floating point number needs to be written two values – the mantissa and the value. In modern systems (32 bits) double precision (64 bits) is used. Then we get that the mantissa will take 53 bits, the indicator – 11 bits. Therefore, the range of numbers that can be displayed in this way: from 4.94 * 10-324 to 1.79 * 10 +308 (from 2-52 × 2-1022 to ~ 1 × 21024)
One of the components of a person's success in our time is receiving modern high-quality education, mastering the knowledge, skills and abilities necessary for life in society. A person today needs to study almost all his life, mastering everything new and new, acquiring the necessary professional qualities.
