What is the mantissa of a floating point number?

The mantissa - also known as a significand or coefficient - is the part of a floating-point number which contains the significant digits of that number. In the common IEEE 754 floating point standard, the mantissa is represented by 53 bits of a 64-bit value (double) and 24 bits of a 32-bit value (single).
