Representing √2 in a fixed point register with 2 bits for the integer part and 3 bits for the fractional part gives a round off error of most nearly   -0.085709   0.0392   0.1642   0.2892 Q5. An engineer working for the Department of Defense is writing a program that transfers non-negative real numbers to integer format.  To avoid overflow problems, the maximum non-negative integer that can be represented in a 5-bit integer word is   16   31   63   64   Q6. For a numerically controlled machine, integers need to be stored in a memory location.  The minimum number of bits needed for an integer word to represent all integers between 0 and 1024 is   8   9   10   11
