if you think of the normal counting system (called decimal as it's based on the number 10) you are taught to count in units, tens, hundreds etc.., ie 10^0, 10^1, 10^2, 10^3, ........ 10^n. you can also do this counting in twos, with the numbers composed of 2^0, 2^1, 2^2, 2^3, .... 2^n. e.g. 123 = 100 + 20 + 3 = 1*10^2 + 2*10^1 +3*10^0 ="123"; 123 = 64 + 32 + 16 + 8 + 2 + 1 = 1*10^6 + 1*10^5 + 1*10^4 + 1*10^3 + 0*10^2 + 1*10^1 + 1*10^0 = "1111011"

Well it's popularised because it's the numerical form that computers process (basically).

They're all using unsigned integers because it doesn't make sense having negative years old.

I see no one has tried to represent their age in IEEE754 yet, weak.

yes, 32 bits should be enough for this purpose.

I'm 17 in 8 bit 2s compliment notation i would be: 00010001
in 16 bit floating point representation i would be:
mantissa = 0000000000010001 exponent = 00000100
or 0000000000010001 E 00000100
