## b to B Formula and Manual Conversion 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.

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 see how to manually convert Bit (b) to Byte (B). We can further simplify the formula to ease the calculation.

FORMULA

Byte = Bit / 8

STEP 1

Byte = Bit x (1 / 8)

STEP 2

Byte = Bit x 0.125

If we apply the above Formula and steps, conversion from 3 Bit to Bytes will be processed as below.

1. = 3 / 8
2. = 3 x (1 / 8)
3. = 3 x 0.125
4. = 0.375
5. i.e. 3 Bit is equal to 0.375 Bytes.

(Result rounded off to 40 decimal positions.)

#### 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.
