The official SI prefixes for multiples have been altered to apply to bytes, where computers have used increments of 1024 (210) rather than 1000 as other metric uses do. The amended names are as follows:

Bit = 1 binary digit

Byte = 8 bits

Kibibyte = 1024 bytes

Mebibyte = 1024 kibibytes = 220 bytes or 1048576 bytes

Gibibyte = 1024 mebibytes = 230 bytes

Tebibyte = 1024 gibibytes = 240 bytes

Pebibyte = 1024 tebibytes = 250 bytes

Exbibyte = 1024 pebibytes = 260 bytes

Zebibyte = 1024 exbibytes = 270 bytes

Yobibyte = 1024 zebibytes = 280 bytes

(Unofficially, the term "brontobibyte" is 1024 yottabytes or 290 bytes)

How would you go about arranging the data to easily determine the highest and the lowest temperature?

Don't arrange it at all. Call the first temperature in the list "lowest" and also "highest". Then go down the list. If a temperature is bigger than "highest", re-set "highest" to that temperature, so that further values will be compared with that. Equally, if a temperature is lower than "lowest", re-set "lowest" to that temperature, so that furher values will be also compared with that. Eventually you will reach the end of the data, with "highest" and "lowest" giving the values you want.
