## b to B - Conversion Formula and Steps

Bit and Byte are units of digital information used to measure storage capacity and data transfer rate. Both Bit and Byte are considered as the basic units. One Byte is equal to 8 bits. There are 8 Bits in one Byte. - view the difference between both units Source Data UnitTarget Data Unit
Bit (b)
Equal to 0 or 1
(Basic Unit)
Byte (B)
Equal to 8 bits
(Basic Unit)

Below conversion diagram will help you to visualize the Bit to Byte calculation steps in a simplified manner.

÷ 8
Bit [b]
Byte [B]
x 8

The formula of converting the Bit to Byte is represented as follows :

Bytes = Bit / 8

Now let us apply the above formula and, write down the steps to convert from Bit (b) to Byte (B). This way, we can try to simplify and reduce to an easy to apply formula.

FORMULA

Byte = Bit / 8

STEP 1

Byte = Bit x (1 / 8)

STEP 2

Byte = Bit x 0.125

Example : If we apply the above Formula and steps, conversion from 10 Bit to Bytes, will be processed as below.

1. = 10 / 8
2. = 10 x (1 / 8)
3. = 10 x 0.125
4. = 1.25
5. i.e. 10 Bit is equal to 1.25 Bytes.

(Result rounded off to 40 decimal positions.)

You can use above formula and steps to convert Bit to Byte using any of the programming language such as Java, Python or Powershell.

#### Definition : 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.

#### Definition : Byte

A Byte is a unit of digital information that typically consists of 8 bits and can represent a wide range of values such as characters, binary data and it is widely used in the digital world to measure the data size and data transfer speed.
