Generally speaking, eight bits to a byte. There is no actual standard that defines how many bits are in a byte, but it has become something of a de facto standard.

historically, the byte was whatever the computer said it was. There have been computers that use bytes anywhere from 5 to 36 bits long. Today however, almost all computers use… 8 bit bytes. When there is absolutely no room for misunderstanding, the term octet is used instead, which always means 8 bits.
A bit is typically the smallest unit of memory in an electronic device. As it is based on a binary system, it can contain only one of two possible values: 1 or 0, which genera…lly relate to that electronic memory element being set On or Off, respectively. A byte consists of 8 bits and is typically used to represent a single logical character. As each of the 8 bits can contain either of two binary values (1 or 0) the total number of combinations in any byte is therefore 2*2*2*2*2*2*2*2 = 2**8 = 256. The literal character for any particular byte value can vary depending on the Code being used by the computer. For example, a byte with a current value of 90 is generally "Z" in ASCII but is "!" in EBCDIC. But even within the general structure of ASCII there can be special character sets employed wherein some or all of the values are agreed to represent other characters used in foreign languages or in special applications. 1 bit (b) = 1 binary value (0 or 1)1 byte (B) = 8 bits = one logical character 1 kilobyte (KB) = 1024B1 megabyte (MB) = 1024KB1 gigabyte (GB) = 1024MB1 terabyte (TB) = 1024GB
32 bits is 4 bytes - 8 bits is one byte. And yes, half a byte is called a nibble - 4 bits.
1 byte has 8 bits. so 25 bytes have 200 bits.
18 bytes is 144 bits.
1 byte = 8 bits 1 Kilo byte = 1024 bytes = 8192 bits 1 Mega byte = 1024 Kilo Bytes = 1048576 bytes = 8388608 bits
72 bits is 9 bytes.
One BYTE is always 8 BITs. (Binary digITs) Some data protocols use a different number of bits to define a character, most systems today use 8 bits, some older systems used 5… bits or 7 bits. But a BYTE is always 8 bits regardless. (a NIBBLE is half a byte - 4 bits).
8.796 x 10^12 bits
1 byte = 8 bits By that logic 16 bytes = 8 x 16 bits So 16 bytes contain 128 bits Do note that bits always typically come in powers of two. 2,4,8,16,32,64,128, and so …on.
8 bits/ byte x 1024 bytes /KB = 8192 bits/KB
There are 80 bits in 10 bytes. Each byte contains eight bits. This is critical to know when shopping for a new computer or adding memory to a compute as it will allow for an… accurate calculation of the amount of storage space.
