(a) Convert the following number to single precision IEEE 754 based on the procedure described in class and in the notes. Express the result in hexadecimal. Show all your work.


(b) Convert the following IEEE 754 single precision number to its decimal (base-10) equivalent. Show all your work.


(c) Indicate the special cases of IEEE 754. In other words, are there any distinct IEEE 754 representations that represent the same number? Are there any numbers that do not convert to and from IEEE754 in the usual way?
