This is a QR code. A QR Code is a 2-dimensional barcode, which has encoded in it a URL (web address), text, or other information. It can be read by a QR code scanner, including QR scanner smartphone apps. Once you have an app installed on your smartphone, open the app and hold your phone’s camera over a QR code to read it. Most QR codes you’ll come across have a URL encoded, so chances are when you read the QR code it will take you to a web page.

Description:

This is the closest I could find to a decent explanation of the Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers, Inc. standard for floating point representation. Much of what is said here will probably be concisely explained in the average textbook. However for anyone looking for further information and knowledge, I start with... More

numbers.
