In C# or Java (I don’t care which) write a program which correctly calculates add, subtract, multiply and divide using our ‘*minifloat*’ binary format using an algorithm you code yourself (see below)

Your program only needs to work on two ‘numbers’ at a time, __read those in from a text fil__e. For each ‘number’ store the sign, exponent and mantissa separately. You can hard code your examples.

E.g.

Struct *minifloat*{

Int sign; // sign, actually 1 bit

Int exponent; // this is the exponent and is 4 bits long (0-15)

Int mantissa; //this is the fraction part and is 3bits long (0-7), but I would keep the 1. Stored explicitly, so it becomes 0-15 and 4 digits long.

}

Show testing for all 4 (add, sub, mul, div) with at least 3 examples (and compare to results you do by hand).

Make sure you are error checking for NAN and +/- 0.

Note: This is an obviously contrived example, the intent is to force you to think about the algorithm, not to make software that anyone would ever want to use.
