**1:**

Intergers- 16 bits

Real Numbers- 32 bits

Text- 8 bits

(i) What range of intergers can be stored using this representaion?

**2:**

Mantissa

101101100011101111011111

*24 bits

Exponent

10101111

*8 bits

(i) What range of numbers can be represented using this notation?

(ii) Explain clearly how the range of numbers could be increased using the same number of bits for the representation.

*Help will be appreciated.
