# Logic Design Assignment

Posted 22 February 2007 - 06:04 PM

Can someone help me with this question?

Suppose a machine has 500 MB of storage space available on a hard disk and receives data over a telephone connetion at the rate of 14,400 bps. At this rate, how long would it take to fill the available storage space?

Thank You!

Is This A Good Question/Topic? 0

im assuming bps is bits per second and MB is megabytes.

there are 8 bits in a byte
there are 1024 bytes in a MB
there are 1024 KB in a MB
there are 1024 MB in a GB
there are 1024 GB in a TB

Its a simple conversion problem

I think it comes out to be about ~1.757 MB per second. You can finish it from here

You missed KB and listed MB twice.

Should be:
there are 8 bits in a byte
there are 1024 bytes in a KB
there are 1024 KB in a MB

And you need one more division 0.0017166 MB per second.
