# Given a text of 600 characters. It is known that the characters are taken from an alphabet with a capacity of 512

**Given a text of 600 characters. It is known that the characters are taken from an alphabet with a capacity of 512 characters. Determines the informational amount of text in bits.**

Let us find out what the informational weight of one character will be if from the condition of our problem we know for sure that the indicated alphabet has a cardinality equal to 512 characters:

N = 2 ^ i;

2 ^ i = 512;

2 ^ i = 29;

i = 9.

Let us determine what the information volume of the specified text will equal if from the condition of the problem we know for sure that it consists of 600 characters:

I = K * i, where K is the number of characters in the corresponding text;

I = 600 * 9 = 5400.

Answer: Under such conditions, the information volume will be equal to 5400 bits.
