# single

Single-precision floating-point real-world value of fi object

single(a)

## Description

Fixed-point numbers can be represented as

$real\text{-}worldvalue={2}^{-fractionlength}×storedinteger$

or, equivalently as

$real\text{-}worldvalue=\left(slope×storedinteger\right)+bias$

single(a) returns the real-world value of a fi object in single-precision floating point.
