  • In this case, as you can see from the table, the differences are not consistent, but the quotients are nearly so. This might be because they're converting every n bytes to m bytes, but then file lengths are always required to be a multiple of 512... Consequently, it might be worthwhile to do this same sort of comparison for a really long file, and see if we are asymptotically approaching a constant quotient as the file lengths go to infinity.
