(Solved) : One Day Tom Found Weird Looking Computer Basement Studying Tom Figured Computer Stores Flo Q41352494 . . .

One day Tom found a weird-looking computer in his basement.After studying it, Tom figured out that this computer storesfloating point numbers in a way similar to the IEEE 754 standard.However, it uses 26 bits. Among these bits, the most significant(i.e. the leftmost) bit is for the sign (same as IEEE 754), thefollowing 6 bits are for the biased exponent with the bias as 31,and the rest are for the significand. If the bits stored on thecomputer for a floating point number are01000010100011100000000000, what is the floating point number? (Ifthe number is between -1 and 1 and is not zero, make sure there isa single zero before the decimal point in the answer.)
