Define a Python function normalize that expects one argument, a bit string of the form returned by unsignedFloatToBinary. The normalize function returns the equivalent bit string in normalized form. Examples of returned values are the string “1.101E-3” from the bit string “0.001101” and the string “1.01100E4” from the bit string “10110.0”. Note the embedded exponent, whose value is represented in base 10 digits.
Define a Python function decimalToSinglePrecision that expects one argument, a signed floating-point number (a Python float). This function returns a string of binary digits representing that number in IEEE single precision format. You should make good use of the other functions in your library for this one.
