A computer byte consists of eight bits, each bit being either a 0 or a 1. Assume that characters are represented using a code that uses a byte for each character. Some written languages, such as Chinese and Japanese, use tens of thousands of different characters. If a language uses roughly 69,000 characters, a computer code for this language would have to use how many bytes per character?

Expert Answer

Step 1

Since there are two possibilities for each bit and there are 8 bits in a byte a total of

2*2*2*2*2*2*2*2 =28 different arrangements is possible; hence there are 28 characters can be represented in a byte.

So, 256 characters can be represented in a byte.

Step 2

According to the question there are roughly 69,000 characters in a...
