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

Nibbles = Byte x 8 / 4

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

FORMULA

Nibble = Byte x 8 / 4

STEP 1

Nibble = Byte x 2

If we apply the above Formula and steps, conversion from 1 Byte to Nibbles, will be processed as below.

1. = 1 x 8 / 4
2. = 1 x 2
3. = 2
4. i.e. 1 Byte is equal to 2 Nibbles.

(Result rounded off to 40 decimal positions.)

#### 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.

#### Definition : Nibble

A Nibble is a unit of digital information that consists of 4 bits. It is half of a byte and can represent a single hexadecimal digit. It is used in computer memory and data storage and sometimes used as a basic unit of data transfer in certain computer architectures.
