Review:
What is a BYTE? 0
¿Qué es un BYTE?
n8 Bits
This is 8 Bytes of Data
translated into a
picture.

Esto es de 8 bytes
+ n Kilo
= 1 thousand =
1,000
n Mega = 1 million =
1,000,000
n Giga= 1 billion =
Capacity of 1,000,000,000
Data is measured
in bytes n Tera
= 1 trillion =
se mide en bytes.
n Example(2 GB) =
2,000,000,000 bytes
The more BYTES, the more
information you can store.
4,000 bits
or 4000 / 8 =
500 Bytes
8,000 bits
or 8000 / 8 =
1,000 Bytes
1 KiloByte
1 Megabyte is
1,000 pages of
this.
1 Gigabyte is
100,000 pages
of this.
