How to use "Mantissa" in context?
It has been said that the mantissa is the neglected stepchild of the decimal point. Granted, the decimal point is the most common and wellknown symbol in mathematics, but the mantissa works just as hard (if not harder) to keep track of math calculations.
For example, consider this simple equation: 3 + 4 = 7. The answer, of course, is 8. But what about 3 + 4 ? Well, 3 + 4 can also be written as 5, 6, or 7. Since the mantissa only recognizes numbers from 09, it needs to change the 3 into the symbol for 3.
