Subtract, multiply rule and truncate the guard bits, Computer Engineering

Write the Add/subtract rule for floating point numbers.

Ans: a. Select the number with the smaller exponent and shift its mantissa right a number of steps equal to the difference in exponents.

b. Set the exponent of the result equal to the larger exponent.

c. Perform addition/subtraction on the mantissa and determine the sign of the result

d. Normalize the resulting value, if it is necessary.

Described multiply rule for floating point numbers.

Ans:a. First add the exponent and subtract 127.

b. then Multiply the mantissa and determine the sign of the result.

c. Normalize the resulting value, if it is necessary.
