In the MINIX operating system an inode occupies 64 bytes.
Assuming that an inode is created for every 10Kbytes of file space, how many inodes would be created for a file space of 10Gbytes?
Assuming a disk block size of 1024 bytes how many disk blocks will be taken up by inodes?

Doing the naive math here:
10 GB is 1M times 1 kB, thus 1M inodes at 64 bytes per inode (= 64 MB). At 1 kB per disk block that would be 64 k disk blocks (65536 I think).
