The conversion diagram provided below offers a visual representation to help you better grasp the steps involved in calculating Bit to Byte in a simplified manner.

÷ 8   
  x 8  

Based on the provided diagram and steps outlined earlier, the formula for converting the Bit (b) to Byte (B) can be expressed as follows:

diamond CONVERSION FORMULA Byte = Bit ÷ 8

Now, let's apply the aforementioned formula and explore the manual conversion process from Bit (b) to Byte (B). To streamline the calculation further, we can simplify the formula for added convenience.


Bytes = Bits ÷ 8


Bytes = Bits x (1 ÷ 8)


Bytes = Bits x 0.125


Example : By applying the previously mentioned formula and steps, the conversion from 1 Bit (b) to Byte (B) can be processed as outlined below.

  1. = 1 ÷ 8
  2. = 1 x (1 ÷ 8)
  3. = 1 x 0.125
  4. = 0.125
  5. i.e. 1 Bit is equal to 0.125 Byte.

Note : Result rounded off to 40 decimal positions.

You can employ the formula and steps mentioned above to convert Bits to Bytes using any of the programming language such as Java, Python, or Powershell.

Unit Definitions

What is Bit ?

A Bit (short for 'binary digit') is the basic unit of information in computing and digital communications. It is a binary value, meaning it can have one of two values=> 0 or 1. Bits are used to represent data in computers and other electronic devices. They are the building blocks of digital information, and are used to store, transmit, and process data.
