**Damon**, Sunday, January 1, 2012 at 8:01pmgiga means 10^9 a one with 9 zeros after it

5,000 = 5^10^5

so

we have

4 * 10^9 bytes on player

=========================

5 * 10^5 bytes per song

which is the same as

40 * 10^8 bytes on player

=========================

5 * 10^5 bytes per song

or

8 * 10^3 songs on a player

but 8*10^3 = 8,000

By the way K or kilo is the symbol for 1000 or 10^3

so 5,000 bytes is 5 KB, kilo bytes
