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)

In the computer jargon certain prefixes are used denoting different mount of "bits", such as kilo, mega, giga and so on. Here is a short list of the meanings of the different prefixes:Kilobyte = one thousand bytesMegabyte = one million bytesGigabyte = one billion bytesTerrabyte = one trillion bytesPetabyte = one quadrillion bytesExabyte = one quintillion bytesAnd the list goes on. So the term related to billion in computer jargon would be giga.

The highest is Soprano, then alto, then tenner, and then bass

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.

Courts from lowest to highest1. District Courts (among/in the states)2. Courts or Appeal (In the middle)3. Supreme Court (Highest - These cases take place in Washington DC)

If they all have a common denominator, then list them from lowest to highest numerator.

List pay rates from A-Z each states pay scale.

Median means the middle. In mathematics, you take a list of numbers, list them from lowest to highest, and the median is whatever number is in the middle.

the number( or numbers) in the middle of a list of numbers in order of highest to lowest. eg. the median in the following list is 7 1,2,3,7,8,9,9

MB is more, 1 MB = 1024 KBs Heres the list from Least to greatest, Bytes, Kilo-Bytes, Mega-Bytes, Giga-Bytes, Terra-Bytes

I will list them from the highest energy to the lowest: -Plasma -Gas -Liquid -Solid -Bose-Einstien Condensate

The ladder of laws is the list of the highest level of laws down to the lowest. The list is as follows, Constitution, federal law, state law, and local law.

To find the highest and lowest elements in a linked list, iterate the list and detect the highest and lowest elements. Details omitted ... list *head; /* pointer to first element */ list *temp; /* temp pointer list *high = null; /* pointer to high element */ list *low = null; /* pointer to low element */ for (temp=head; temp!=null; temp=temp->next) { /* iterate all elements */ if (temp == head ) { /* initial case */ high = low = temp; /* start accumulating results } else { /* otherwise */ if (higher(temp, high) high = temp; /* choose higher */ if (lower(temp, low) low = temp; /* choose lower */ } }

The easiest way to find the top ten values in a list is to sort the list from highest to lowest and select the top ten cells.

The range of is 70, which is the difference between the highest and lowest numbers in the list.

If we list the electromagnetic energy from lowest energy (lowest frequency) to highest, we list them microwaves, infrared radiation, orange light, blue light and X-rays.
