Hi there! Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

This is a slightly tricky question, but what happens in IEEE Floating point numbers, is that there is also a bias, to facilitate comparison, so the answer is No, not exactly. If 2's complement were used, it would be difficult to order and compare positive and negative exponents.

Please let me know if you need any clarification. Always glad to help!

Would you mind if I ask you more questions on this thread?

Here is my next ?, if you think you can help me more.

The 2's complement representation for -2 is 111111111110, if we have 12 bits available to represent signed integers.

Is this true also? My guess is True because I think if I have 12 binary digit, I want to make sure that I must have 12 bits available to match. My concern to the question is that this has to be represent to signed integers Or 2 complement. Any explanation? I'm confusing.

My apology, thank for you time. I have reach my 3 easy questions/month under a free account. Is the Gold Pro really first month free? if I use my 1st month free and I cancel before the the free trial, will there be a fee also?
