With x = 0101 1111 1011 1110 0100 0000 0000 0000(two) and

y = 0011 1111 1111 1000 0000 0000 0000 0000(two), and

z = 1101 1111 1011 1110 0100 0000 0000 0000 0000(two)

representing single precision IEE 754 floating-point numbers, perform, showing all work:

a) x + y

b) (result of part a) + z

c) Why is this result counterintuitive?

a) i got 2.74x10^10

b)z is -2.74x10^10

so the reult is 0

c) i don't see why it's counterintuative
