Arithmetic[edit]

Floating point numbers would be useless if we couldnt operate on them. Fortunately, there are algorithms for performing the basic arithmetic operations (Addition, subtraction, multiplication, division), as well as other operations such as exponentials, square-roots, and trancendentals. This page will introduce some of the basic arithmetic operations, and more advanced algorithms will be saved for a later page.

Multiplication[edit]

Division[edit]

Addition[edit]
