- two major approaches to store real numbers (i.e., numbers with fractional component
- This representation has fixed number of bits for integer part and for fractional part
- f given fixed-point representation is IIII.FFF
- then you can store minimum value is 0000.0001 and maximum value is 9999.9999.
- Assume number is using 32-bit format which reserve 1 bit for the sign, 15 bits for the integer part and 16 bits for the fractional part. Then, -43.625 is represented as following:
