Since there are an infinite number of real values and only a finite number of 32-
or 64 - bit patterns , it is not surprising that ... that cannot be represented exactly ,
the computer will round off the value to the pattern with the closest corresponding
Such compression involves applying algorithms that shorten an image's bit -
pattern representation , thus conserving memory ... The GIF format utilizes
techniques that identify repetitive patterns in an image and store those patterns
If the bit pattern 001001100 appears at multiple places in a computer's memory ,
the pattern is guaranteed to refer to the same value each time . 11. Describe two
