64 bit double precision IEEE 754 binary floating point number 1 - 001 1100 0010 - 0010 0101 1100 0010 0001 0100 0000 0010 0111 1110 0001 0100 1000 converted to decimal base ten (double)

How to convert 64 bit double precision IEEE 754 binary floating point:
1 - 001 1100 0010 - 0010 0101 1100 0010 0001 0100 0000 0010 0111 1110 0001 0100 1000.

1. Identify the elements that make up the binary representation of the number:

First bit (the leftmost) indicates the sign,
1 = negative, 0 = positive.


The next 11 bits contain the exponent:
001 1100 0010


The last 52 bits contain the mantissa:
0010 0101 1100 0010 0001 0100 0000 0010 0111 1110 0001 0100 1000

2. Convert the exponent, that is allways a positive integer, from binary (base 2) to decimal (base 10):

001 1100 0010(2) =


0 × 210 + 0 × 29 + 1 × 28 + 1 × 27 + 1 × 26 + 0 × 25 + 0 × 24 + 0 × 23 + 0 × 22 + 1 × 21 + 0 × 20 =


0 + 0 + 256 + 128 + 64 + 0 + 0 + 0 + 0 + 2 + 0 =


256 + 128 + 64 + 2 =


450(10)

3. Adjust the exponent, subtract the excess bits, 2(11 - 1) - 1 = 1023, that is due to the 11 bit excess/bias notation:

Exponent adjusted = 450 - 1023 = -573

4. Convert the mantissa, that represents the number's fractional part (the excess beyond the number's integer part, comma delimited), from binary (base 2) to decimal (base 10):

0010 0101 1100 0010 0001 0100 0000 0010 0111 1110 0001 0100 1000(2) =

0 × 2-1 + 0 × 2-2 + 1 × 2-3 + 0 × 2-4 + 0 × 2-5 + 1 × 2-6 + 0 × 2-7 + 1 × 2-8 + 1 × 2-9 + 1 × 2-10 + 0 × 2-11 + 0 × 2-12 + 0 × 2-13 + 0 × 2-14 + 1 × 2-15 + 0 × 2-16 + 0 × 2-17 + 0 × 2-18 + 0 × 2-19 + 1 × 2-20 + 0 × 2-21 + 1 × 2-22 + 0 × 2-23 + 0 × 2-24 + 0 × 2-25 + 0 × 2-26 + 0 × 2-27 + 0 × 2-28 + 0 × 2-29 + 0 × 2-30 + 1 × 2-31 + 0 × 2-32 + 0 × 2-33 + 1 × 2-34 + 1 × 2-35 + 1 × 2-36 + 1 × 2-37 + 1 × 2-38 + 1 × 2-39 + 0 × 2-40 + 0 × 2-41 + 0 × 2-42 + 0 × 2-43 + 1 × 2-44 + 0 × 2-45 + 1 × 2-46 + 0 × 2-47 + 0 × 2-48 + 1 × 2-49 + 0 × 2-50 + 0 × 2-51 + 0 × 2-52 =


0 + 0 + 0.125 + 0 + 0 + 0.015 625 + 0 + 0.003 906 25 + 0.001 953 125 + 0.000 976 562 5 + 0 + 0 + 0 + 0 + 0.000 030 517 578 125 + 0 + 0 + 0 + 0 + 0.000 000 953 674 316 406 25 + 0 + 0.000 000 238 418 579 101 562 5 + 0 + 0 + 0 + 0 + 0 + 0 + 0 + 0 + 0.000 000 000 465 661 287 307 739 257 812 5 + 0 + 0 + 0.000 000 000 058 207 660 913 467 407 226 562 5 + 0.000 000 000 029 103 830 456 733 703 613 281 25 + 0.000 000 000 014 551 915 228 366 851 806 640 625 + 0.000 000 000 007 275 957 614 183 425 903 320 312 5 + 0.000 000 000 003 637 978 807 091 712 951 660 156 25 + 0.000 000 000 001 818 989 403 545 856 475 830 078 125 + 0 + 0 + 0 + 0 + 0.000 000 000 000 056 843 418 860 808 014 869 689 941 406 25 + 0 + 0.000 000 000 000 014 210 854 715 202 003 717 422 485 351 562 5 + 0 + 0 + 0.000 000 000 000 001 776 356 839 400 250 464 677 810 668 945 312 5 + 0 + 0 + 0 =

All base ten decimal numbers converted to 64 bit double precision IEEE 754 binary floating point

How to convert numbers from 64 bit double precision IEEE 754 binary floating point standard to decimal system in base 10

Follow the steps below to convert a number from 64 bit double precision IEEE 754 binary floating point representation to base 10 decimal system:

  • 1. Identify the elements that make up the binary representation of the number:
    First bit (leftmost) indicates the sign, 1 = negative, 0 = pozitive.
    The next 11 bits contain the exponent.
    The last 52 bits contain the mantissa.
  • 2. Convert the exponent, that is allways a positive integer, from binary (base 2) to decimal (base 10).
  • 3. Adjust the exponent, subtract the excess bits, 2(11 - 1) - 1 = 1,023, that is due to the 11 bit excess/bias notation.
  • 4. Convert the mantissa, that represents the number's fractional part (the excess beyond the number's integer part, comma delimited), from binary (base 2) to decimal (base 10).
  • 5. Put all the numbers into expression to calculate the double precision floating point decimal value:
    (-1)Sign × (1 + Mantissa) × 2(Exponent adjusted)

Example: convert the number 1 - 100 0011 1101 - 1000 0000 0010 0001 0100 0000 0100 1110 0000 0100 0000 1010 1000 from 64 bit double precision IEEE 754 binary floating point system to base ten decimal (double):

  • 1. Identify the elements that make up the binary representation of the number:
    First bit (leftmost) indicates the sign, 1 = negative, 0 = pozitive.
    The next 11 bits contain the exponent: 100 0011 1101
    The last 52 bits contain the mantissa:
    1000 0000 0010 0001 0100 0000 0100 1110 0000 0100 0000 1010 1000
  • 2. Convert the exponent, that is allways a positive integer, from binary (base 2) to decimal (base 10):
    100 0011 1101(2) =
    1 × 210 + 0 × 29 + 0 × 28 + 0 × 27 + 0 × 26 + 1 × 25 + 1 × 24 + 1 × 23 + 1 × 22 + 0 × 21 + 1 × 20 =
    1,024 + 0 + 0 + 0 + 0 + 32 + 16 + 8 + 4 + 0 + 1 =
    1,024 + 32 + 16 + 8 + 4 + 1 =
    1,085(10)
  • 3. Adjust the exponent, subtract the excess bits, 2(11 - 1) - 1 = 1,023, that is due to the 11 bit excess/bias notation:
    Exponent adjusted = 1,085 - 1,023 = 62
  • 4. Convert the mantissa, that represents the number's fractional part (the excess beyond the number's integer part, comma delimited), from binary (base 2) to decimal (base 10):
