 Gladwin said: (Jan 3, 2011) 2power 12 storage locations fof n lines 2^n locations are available

 Saichaitanya said: (Mar 29, 2011) The storage locations can be decide by using the following formula: (2 power n) this gives the storage locations, where n is the number of address lines. Here the no. of address lines are 12 i.e. n=12 Therefore (2^12) gives 4096.

 Harpreet said: (May 13, 2011) (2)of power P= M M= MO. OF MEMORIES LOCATIONS P= NO . OF ADDRESS LINES SO GIVEN DATA WAS " P " GET "M"

 Dhiaj said: (Aug 29, 2011) Answer by sainchaitanya is correct.

 Vijay said: (Mar 16, 2013) The electronic devises deals with binary number(2). So 12 address lines can have 2^12 memory locations.

 Brijesh said: (Nov 14, 2013) Each line can be addressed either 0 or 1 so each address line can be addressed in two ways. There are total 12 address line (2*2*2.......2) (12 times therefore 2^12 address line are required).

 Er. Lalbabu Sahani said: (May 10, 2016) I agree with you @Vijay. 12 address lines can have 2^12 memory locations.
