32 bit floating point decimal help

lateapex asked
Last Modified: 2012-08-18
I've got a 32 bit floating point decimal at a device. It's split into two 16 bit integers to go over the wire.

The original value, at the device, is 156.

The two 16 bit integers come across as 17180 and 0. How do I convert, in C#, the 17180 and 0 back to 156?
