Assume 100,000 records of fixed length. It has name: 30 bytes, id: 5 bytes, street: 30 bytes, city: 20 bytes,
state: 2 bytes, orderdate: 8 bytes, status: 5 bytes.
a). What is the record size (in bytes)?
b). Assume a block size of 1024. How many unspanned records will fit per block?
c). How many blocks are needed to hold the file?
d). What percent of the disk space is wasted when using unspanned records.
e). Will this fit on a 1GB thumb drive?
a) Record size : 30 + 5 + 30 + 20 + 2 + 8 + 5 = 100 bytes b) Block size is 1024 bytes. Each block has size of 100 bytes. So... View the full answer
