Mantissa is a pure fraction in sign - magnitude form. The decimal number $$0.239 \times {2^{13}}$$ has the following hexadecimal representation without normalization and rounding off

The normalized representation for the above format is specified as follows. The mantissa has an implicit preceding the binary (radix) point. Assume that only $$0's$$ are padded in while shifting a field. The normalized representation of the above $$\left( {0.239 \times {2^{13}}} \right)$$ is

Let $$s, e,$$ and $$m$$ be the numbers represented in binary in the sign, exponent, and mantissa fields respectively. Then the floating point number represented is

$$\left\{ {\matrix{ {{{\left( { - 1} \right)}^s}\left( {1 + m \times {2^{ - 9}}} \right){2^{e - 31}},} & {if\,the\,{\mathop{\rm exponent}\nolimits} \, \ne \,111111} \cr {\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,0} & {otherwise\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,} \cr } } \right.$$

What is the maximum difference between two successive real numbers representable in this system?
