    Floating Point Representation of Numbers (XVII)

    Written by :- Thokchom Sarojkumar Sinha

    Divide in normalised floating point representation:
    (a) .6123 E -07 by .2132 E -03
    (b) .8642 E 02 by .2562 E 02

    Solution :- We know that (x×10α)/(y×10β) = (x/y)10α-β (y ≠0)
    For dividing a number by another number ,
    (i) divide the mantissa of the first number by the mantissa of the second number to obtained the mantissa of the quotient.
    (ii) Subtract the exponent of the second number from the exponent of the first number to
    obtain the exponent of the quotient.
    Then the quotient is given by using the normalised floating point representation.

    (a) .6123 E ...
