Hi there! Thanks for posting your question here.

Yes! The amount of states depends on the amount of qubits in the quantum computer.
2 quibits have 4 states, 3 quibits have 8 states, this scales like 2^n states, where n is the number of qubits! (2^2=4, 2^3=8)

This means that the supercomputer could be in 2^72 states! or the same as 4.7223665E+21classical bits!

You might have seen this video before! But if anyone is reading this question and wants to find out more about quantum computers this is a great start!
