In summary, when adding values in floating-point notation, the order in which
they are added can be extremely important. The general rule is to always add the
smaller values together first; however, even this does not guarantee accuracy.
1.0 e. 10.01 *34. Express each of the following values in binary notation: a. 5V* b.
Vu c. 77A d. VA e. 6V» *35. Decode the following bit patterns using the floating-
point format discussed in this chapter: a. 01011100 b. 11001000 c. 00101010 d.
However, if the operands are stored as floating-point values, the addition process
must extract the mantissa of each, shift them right or left according to the
exponent fields, check the sign bits, perform the addition, and translate the result
