A value V is to be rounded to an arbitrary precision resulting in the value V". Conventional rounding technique uses one step to accomplish this. Multistep rounding uses several steps to round the value V to successively shorter precisions with the final rounding step producing the desired value V". This alternate rounding method is one way to implement with the minimum of hardware, the denorma
