# what’s the correct ways

To perform a Floating Point addition between the following two numbers X and Y in IEEE format, describe the shifts required to perform the operation. The numbers are expressed in hexadecimal so convert them to binary and figure it out.

X = 47E00000

Y= 45400000 pick one from belowe.

No shifting is required before the add or after it.

The mantissa of the smaller number is shifted to the right by 1 bit before the add. There is no shifting after the add.

The mantissa of the smaller number is shifted to the right by 2 bits before the add. There is no shifting after the add.

The mantissa of the smaller number is shifted to the right by 3 bits before the add. There is no shifting after the add.

The mantissa of the smaller number is shifted to the right by 4 bits before the add. There is no shifting after the add.

The mantissa of the smaller number is shifted to the right by 1 bit before the add. After the add, the mantissa of the result is shifted to the right by 1 bit.

The mantissa of the smaller number is shifted to the right by 2 bits before the add. After the add, the mantissa of the result is shifted to the right by 1 bit.

The mantissa of the smaller number is shifted to the right by 3 bits before the add. After the add, the mantissa of the result is shifted to the right by 1 bit.

The mantissa of the smaller number is shifted to the right by 4 bits before the add. After the add, the mantissa of the result is shifted to the right by 1 bit.

The mantissa of the smaller number is shifted to the right by some number of bits not shown above before the add. After the add, the mantissa of the result is not shifted

The mantissa of the smaller number is shifted to the right by some number of bits not shown above before the add. After the add, the mantissa of the result is shifted to the right by 1 bit.

The mantissa of the smaller number is shifted to the right by some number of bits not shown above before the add. After the add, the mantissa of the result is shifted to the right by 2 bits
