a computer monitor is running at a resolution of 1600x1200 with 24-bit color.

the number of pixels = 1600x1200 = 1,920,000

one pixel's color is a string of 24 binary digits so

the number of colors one pixel can display is 2^24 = 16,777,216

now think of each pixel as a digit in a massive number

and think of colors as the base [like our own digits use base 10]

so the number of different images that this monitor can display is:

base ^ number of digits

=

16,777,216 ^ 1,920,000

i would like someone to either calculate that answer for me,

or tell me how many digits the answer is

and for the sake of fascination - this array of images, despite being mostly random noise, does indeed contain every image your mind can fathom, which includes every frame of every movie, every photograph taken or yet to be taken, of every person, at every age, from every angle. and dont forget there are pages just listing uncalculated digits of pi and un-discovered equations.WOOHOO the greatest database of all time can be rendered with the simplest algorithm
