    Assuming this is SRAM and not DRAM or flash:

    1) The data lines are bidirectional, so only count them once. Hint - you'll need to take both shoes off.
    2) Two-to-the-power-of-what? makes 64 K?
    3) How many bytes in 16 bits? Multiply this by 64 K.

    Know the difference between k and K, or your answers will be wrong. And know that the world doesn't have an obligation to spoon feed you.
