Problem 59E

How many bytes are required to encode \(n\) bits of data where \(n\) equals

a) 7?

b) 17?

c) 1001?

d) 28,800?

**Accepted Solution**

Step-by-Step Solution:

Step 1 of 4

We have to find the how many bytes of data required to n bits of data

where n is equal to.

(a) 7?

Ans :

Each byte is equal to 8 bits and less than 8 bits will also require one byte.

so we must have byte required to encode the 7 bits of data.
