A certain audio compact dise (CD) contains 783.216 megabytes of digital information. Each byte consists of exactly 8 bits. When played, a CD player reads the CD's digital information at a constant rate of 1.4 megabits per scoond. How many minutes does it take the player to read the entire CD?

So how many minutes does a player take in order to read an entire CD? So in one CD, there are 783.216 times 10 to the sixth bites it's reading. There are eight bits for every one bite. Ah, for every one second, it is able to read a 1.4 times 10 to the sixth bits. And then we can multiply this by a minute. So we'll say one minute for every 60 seconds, and we're getting approximately 70 4.6 minutes in order to read an entire CD. So per CD, this would be our final answer. That is the end of the solution. Thank you for watching.
