Math Focus: Linear algebra, linear statistical models
Can we assume 1 character = 8 bits, i.e. UTF-8? (Because Unicode has been extended.)

If so, 4 GB = 4 * 1024 MB = 4 * 1024 * 1024 KB = 4 * 1024 * 1024 * 1024 B

Since each character is 1 B, the storage space can hold 4294967296 characters.

(4294967296 char) / (2000 char/page) = 2147483.648 pages.
Thanks from Joppy
