why does this machine show 80 mb of RAM

quick question.  I am working on a friends machine....an old IBM 340 with windows 98 se.  The system reports 80 mb of ram.......I thought (probably mistakenly) that ram was in multiples of 8...  like 16....32....64....etc.    How am I ending up with a reportedly 80 mb of ram....there is 4 ram cards in the slots....two of which are 8 mb....the other two I have no ideal.....can anyone shed some light on this?

Same of the ram would be allotted to the video card.
