IT computer memory

posted by on .

Hi,

Can someone check this for me please..

18 MB of data are to be transmitted over a a megabyte per second connection. How long should the complete transaction take, to the nearest 0.1s.

Size of file / data rate so,
18MB x 10^6 x 8 bits = 144,000,00

4 megabits per second = 4 x 10^6 = 4,000,000 bits per second

so the download time will be
144,000,000 / 4,000,000 = 36 seconds

my answer is 36 seconds is that right

next ,....

a 50 MB file compressed using a ratio of 10 what is the compressed file size

50MB / 10 = 5 MB

Is this correct ???

Thanks you

    You have to double check the question:

    "18 MB of data are to be transmitted over a a megabyte per second connection"

    Is it "a" megabyte connection" or is it "4 megabit connection"?

    Hi

    Sorry wasn't too clear

    This should read 18MB of data are to be transmitted over a 4 megabits per second connection ... how long would it take to complete the transaction

    to the nearest 0.1 s

    For the second part of your question...

    Compressed file size = uncompressed / compression ratio

    so

    Compressed file size = 50MB / 10

    Compressed file size = 5MB

    I think

    No, incorrect.

    Be carefull with this, your:

    18MB x 10^6 x 8 bits = 144,000,00

    Should in fact be:

    18mb x 2^20 x 8 bits = 150,994,994

    Your second part is correct, so its

    4 megabits per second = 4 x 10^6 = 4,000,000

    Answer:

    150994994 / 4000000 = 37.75 seconds.
