# Difference between Bit, Nibble, and Byte

A bit is either 0 or 1, a group of 4 bits is a Nibble, and 8 bits make a Byte.

## Bit

The Bit (short for Binary Digit) is the smallest unit of digital data. A single Bit can have a maximum of two values, 0 or 1.

The below chart compares some popular Numeral Systems and Possible values for a single digit. Use the bit conversion table to view the value of 1 bit to 10 bits in all other units.

## Nibble

A Nibble is a group of 4 bits. If we arrange the bits in a Nibble into unique combinations, it can hold decimal values from 0 to 15. That means it can represent 16 values. Conversion table for Nibble will show the value of 1 Byte to 10 Bytes in all other units.

## Byte

A byte contains 8 bits. We can arrange the Bits in a Byte into 256 unique combinations to represent decimal values from 0 to 255. Use Byte Conversion Table for a detailed view of conversion of 1 Byte to 10 Bytes in all other units.
