Represent the number (-26.5)10 as a floating point binary number with 24 bits. The normalized fraction mantissa has 16 bits and the exponent has 8 bits 5m Dec2005

Represent the number (-26.5)10 as a floating point binary number with 24 bits. The normalized fraction mantissa has 16 bits and the exponent has 8 bits. Make and state suitable assumptions, if any 5m Dec2005 First of all draw the 24 bits precision representations  S stands for Sign (white color) E stands for Exponent (yellow color) N stands for Number… Read More »

An Assembly program to read in decimal inputs repeatedly untill a zero value is read, At this point it should print out the sum of the numbers read in so far

Now we will write another Assembly program to read  in decimal inputs repeatedly untill a zero value is read, At this point it should print out the sum of the numbers read in so far. Let’s identify variables needed for this program. First variables will be holding the Messages “ENTER NO.BETN (0-9) & (ENTER ZERO TO STOP) ” and “TOTAL SUM… Read More »
