Let us explain floating-point notation with an example using only one byte of
storage. Although machines normally use much longer patterns, this eight-bit
format is representative of actual systems and serves to demonstrate the
We now add this 'A to the next value in the list, 2/2, and obtain 2°/, which we can
accurately store in a byte as 01101011. The result this time is the correct answer.
To summarize, in adding numeric values represented in floating-point notation, ...
