  The computer is a technological system containing an
  input, a process, and an output. List at least three
  examples in the space below.

         Input              Process            Output

   Input Devices          Process Devices      Output Devices

A code is shared verbal or non-verbal language
necessary for communication to occur.

                        Bit = 0 or 1
                       Byte = 8 Bits
                  Megabyte = 1 million bytes
                  Gigabyte = 1 Billion bytes
