A 5MB file is transferred over a connection in 16 seconds. Determine the size of the file (in KB) that can be transferred over another connection at triple speed in 10 seconds. Give one number in your answer – the file size in KB.
We convert the specified file size from MB to KB.
Since 1 MB contains 1024 KB, we get:
5 * 1024 = 5120 KB.
Determine the transfer rate of this file.
To do this, we divide the file size by the time it was transferred.
5120/16 = 320 KB / s.
Find three times the transmission rate.
320 * 3 = 960 KB / s.
It follows from this that the size of the file that can be transferred in 10 seconds at the specified speed will be equal to:
960 * 10 = 9600 KB.
In MB we get:
9600/1024 = 9.375 MB.
