What is a another word for locations in computer memory? Are they just positions in the computer memory. Am I right yes or no.
Please do not use the word memory location or location when explainig please. Another word for memory location or location would be helpful.

What's the context here? You could use the term 'position' if you prefer and it'll mean the same thing, however 'location' is usually regarded as being more technically correct, so if you're answering an exam question or writing an essay for an assignment then I'd recommend sticking with the word 'location'.

In terms of visualising what a memory location relates to in the real/physical world, it's a single byte in memory.
