I spent about 2 hours going through the material. I found this article explains
computer numbering formats with examples very well. I think it is an effective
learning tool and reference material for students who want to learn or review
how numbers and text are represented on a computer. It is also an excellent
supplemental material to Computer Organization courses.

Technical Remarks:

The material is easy to use. There are seven sections in the article. Users
can easily navigate from one section to another.
