1).Consider a 16 bits floating point number system. The sign bit is the most

significant bit. 6 bits are reserved for the exponent and remaining 9 bits are the mantissa. A bias of 31 is to be used. What is the floating point representation of number?

2). Consider a 16 bits floating point number system. The sign bit is the most significant bit. 6 bits are reserved for the exponent and the remaining 9 bit are the mantissa. What is the largest denormalized number? Write the number in binary.
