It's one way that came to mind to change 10^N to 2^n, because IEEE 754 binary32 format is (p,e,m) where M*10^N = (1)^p * (1+m) * 2^e. I thought to store numbers in IEEE 754 binary64 format, i.e. double precision and write algorithms for +.,*,/ using the single precision hardware instructions, but I may drop that idea.
