**Description**:

This is a start of the table of Mathematical Constants that BASIC uses.

Each Floating Point Constant is stored as a 5-byte floating point variable.

That is where the 1st Byte = Exponent and the next 4 bytes = the Mantissa value (MSB first).

It's contents are as follows:

Start Address | Exponent | Mantissa 1 | Mantissa 2 | Mantissa 3 | Mantissa 4 | Value | Description |
