IEEE 754 Single Precision Floating Point System:
Determine the smallest floating point number x greater than 1 that can be
represented exactly in a binary single precision floating point system.
Determine the quantity ε = x - 1 (This is called machine epsilon).

1 bit sign
8 bits for exponent
23 bits for significand
I'm thinking something like -
Which equals 1.0000001
