## Bit (b) to Byte (B) Conversion Formula and Steps

Bit to Byte Calculator Tool allows you to easily convert from Bit (b) to Byte (B). This converter uses the below formula and steps to perform the conversion.

The formula of converting the Bit (b) to Byte (B) is represented as follows :

diamond CONVERSION FORMULA Byte = Bit ÷ 8
Source Data Unit Target Data Unit
Bit
Equal to 0 or 1
(Basic Unit)
Byte

The conversion diagram below will help you to visualize the steps involved in calculating Bit to Byte in a simplified manner.

÷ 8
x 8

Now let us apply the above formula and see how to manually convert Bit (b) to Byte (B). We can further simplify the formula to ease the calculation.

FORMULA

Bytes = Bits ÷ 8

STEP 1

Bytes = Bits x (1 ÷ 8)

STEP 2

Bytes = Bits x 0.125

If we apply the above Formula and steps, conversion from 17 Bit (b) to Byte (B) will be processed as below.

1. = 17 ÷ 8
2. = 17 x (1 ÷ 8)
3. = 17 x 0.125
4. = 2.125
5. i.e. 17 Bit is equal to 2.125 Byte.

Note : Result rounded off to 40 decimal positions.

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

### Unit Definitions

#### 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.
