How many colors the palette will contain if 1 byte of information is allocated for one pixel.

As we know from the school curriculum, to calculate the number of colors that the palette contains, you must use the following formula:

N = 2 ^ i, where N is the number of available colors, and i is, in fact, the color depth.

Let’s determine what value will be equal to the number of colors that our palette contains, if from the condition of our problem we know for sure that the color depth is 1 byte:

1 byte is the same as 8 bits;

N = 2 ^ 8;

N = 256.

Answer: Under these conditions, the palette contains 256 colors.
