# significand

significand(x)

Extract the `significand(s)`

(a.k.a. mantissa), in binary representation, of
a floating-point number or array. If `x`

is a non-zero finite number,
than the result will be a number of the same type on the interval
$[1,2)$. Otherwise `x`

is returned.

```
julia> significand(15.2)/15.2
0.125
julia> significand(15.2)*8
15.2
```
