I need help with the following questions.
Write each answer as a power of 2. Show your work and explain your steps.
a. Computer capacity is often measured in bits and bytes. A bit is the smallest unit, which is a 1 or 0, in the computer's memory. A byte is 2^3 bits. A megabyte (MB) is 2^20 bytes. How many bits are in a megabyte?
b. A gigabyte (GB) is 2^30 bytes. How many megabytes are in a gigabyte? How many bits are in a gigabyte?

a. 2^3 * 2^20 = 2^23
b. 2^30/2^20 = 2^10
2^30 * 2^3 = ?
