Representing Integers Since computers retain all information as bits ( 0 or 1 ) ,
binary numbers provide a natural means of storing integer values . When an
integer value must be saved in a computer , its binary equivalent can be encoded
as a ...
Thus , each component of a real number in scientific notation can be treated as
an integer value . For example , the real value 1234x56 , which normalizes to
1.23456 x 103 , could be represented by the integer pair ( 123456 , 3 ) . Similarly
Any integer value can be stored as a binary number - a sequence of bits ( Os and
1s ) , each corresponding to a power of 2 . Most computers and programs employ
a fixed - width integer representation , utilizing a set number of bits ( usually 32 ...
