A 4 byte float has the value: 0x7F800000. Its value as a floating point number is:

a. -39.482

b. +0.0

c. 11.0

d. +Infinity

Hey there, I was hoping to solve another problem but I need help. I was wondering how I would convert the value to the desired answer?

Another question.. what if the 4 byte float was a 8 byte float. How would it make a difference?

Thank you.

If you're pertaining to C/++, look at IEEE 754, Single Precision for a 32-bit (generally 4-byte) float.
