# How many bits of memory does a ram-chipset with 12 address pins and 8 data pins have ?

Depends on whether the address lines are duplexed to achieve both column and row addressing.

12 lines gives 2 (power 12) address = 4096.
Times 8 bits = 32768 bits.
However if the address lines are used with a column / row toggle then the number of bits is 32768 x 4096 = 134,217,728 (128 meg)

 I'll give you an address that was featured on a television show. You give me the name of that show. These addresses remained the same throughout the run of the show so there isn't a confusion. (Lets think old tv shows.) Good luck and have fun!!
