I don't think that's right.

The range of a single precision floating point number is from

-3.4028234 × 10E38 to 3.4028234 × 10E38 (not from -1 to 1)

There are only 23 bits of precision for the mantissa + 1 for sign in a
single precision float.

May you, and all beings
be happy and free from suffering :)
