Eg: an operating system
It acts as an interface between the user and the computer.the location of the data or information stored will be known only to the operating system.it performs the task of storing and managing.

Q5. Calculate the following.
1234 / 1024
1234 * 1024
543218 / 1024 * 1024
543218 Byte=? KB
543218 / 1024
1TB * 1024 * 1024
1TB * 1024 * 1024 * 1024
1.24 * 1024 * 1024 * 1024
Q6. There are 87 images of 3.5MB each, 27 video clips of 132MB each, and 5000 songs of 4.2MB in hard disk. You have an 8 GB pen drive (assume that full space available). Now the question is how many song you can able to copy to the pen drive after coping all image and video clip? Show your answer with calculation.
Given: 87 images of 3.5MB each
27 video clips of 132MB each
5000 songs of 4.2MB each
Storage = 8GB
Storage occupied by images
Storage occupied by video clips
Total storage occupied
Total space left in GB
Total space left in MB
= 4.22 * 1024
Number of songs that can be copied to the pen drive
Therefore 1028 songs can be copied.
