To transmit a secret message, a code consisting of capital Latin letters and numbers is used (a total of 36 different characters are used). In this case, all symbols are encoded with the same (minimum possible) number of bits. Determine the information volume of the message, 160 characters long.
Given: N = 36 K = 160 Find: V-? Solution: N = 2i, 36 = 2i, 25 <2i <26, i = 6 bits V = K * i = 160 * 6 bits = 960 bits = 120 bytes. Answer: 120 bytes.
Remember: The process of learning a person lasts a lifetime. The value of the same knowledge for different people may be different, it is determined by their individual characteristics and needs. Therefore, knowledge is always needed at any age and position.
