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.

FORMULA

Bytes = Bits ÷ 8

STEP 1

Bytes = Bits x (1 ÷ 8)

STEP 2

Bytes = Bits x 0.125
