In a packet switching network, if the message size is 48 bytes and each packet contains a header of 3 bytes. If 24 packets are required to transmit the message, the packet size is

  1. 2 bytes
  2. 1 byte
  3. 4 bytes
  4. 5 bytes

Total size of the data including header = 3x24 + 48 = 120

Number of packets = 24.

So, size of each packet = (120/24)= 5

Suppose we have X byte of data in packet

so packet size=x+3

and number of packet's(n=24) can be find

n=48/X

X=48/24

X=2 Bytes ,so Packet size is 2 of Bytes

You forgot to add the header value to your packet size. It must be 2+3=5
