hi, i have a problem, A raster scan display has a resolution of 1024 x 1326 and a 16-bit color depth calculate the number of bitplanes and the size of the frame buffer required for this display. can anyone tell me how to solve this problem. how can i find the size of the frame buffer. thank u.

There would be 16 bitplanes per row, for total of 21216. Each byte in a bitplane can hold 8 pixels, so we divide 1024 by 8, getting 128. 128 times 21216 is 2715648, which is how many bytes you'll need for your framebuffer.

Why do I feel like I'm doing someone elses homework?

I'm curious why anyone would use bitplanes for 16-bit colour, though. 16 colours (aka, 4-bit) would seem a whole lot more likely.
