| **The message is 3 pages, 25 lines each. Each line contains 60 characters. The power of the used alphabet is 256 characters. How much information does a text message contain?**

First, we determine the total number of characters in this message.

To do this, we multiply among ourselves the number of pages, lines on one page and the number of characters in one line.

3 * 25 * 60 = 4500 characters.

We find the information volume of one symbol using the following formula:

N = 2i

256 = 2і

i = 8.

We determine the amount of information in the text.

To do this, we multiply the number of characters by the character size, namely 8 bits.

4500 * 8 = 36000 bits.

In Kbytes, get:

36000 / (1024 * 8) = 4.394 KB.

Answer:

4,394 kB.
