Dear sir,

I wasn&#39;t given the expected answer for the sign bit.

Write a program that converts a given floating point binary number with a 24-bit normalized mantissa and an 8-bit exponent to its decimal (i.e. base 10) equivalent. For the mantissa, use the representation that has a hidden bit, and for the exponent use a bias of 127 instead of a sign bit. Of course, you need to take care of negative numbers in the mantissa also. Use your program to answer the following questions: (a) Mantissa: 11110010 11000101 01101010, exponent: 01011000. What is the base-10 number? (b) What is the largest number (in base 10) the system can represent? (c) What is the smallest non-zero positive base-10 number the system can represent? (d) What is the smallest difference between two such numbers? Give your answer in base 10. (e) How many significant base-10 digits can we trust using such a representation? Your program should do the computations from first principle, and not use functions already available in MATLAB or Python, if you are using either language.
