Figure 4: Exemplary initial bits of a self-extending positive integer number. The three first bits B1, B2, and B3 can code eight variants of the total length of the Mantissa in bits (e.g., 5, 13, 21, 29, 45, 61, 77, more). Hence, we get arbitrary size resp. precision of the number, starting with only one byte
