The earliest computers could only send 8 bits at a time, it was only natural to start writing code in sets of 8 bits. This came to be called a byte. It's essentially… arbitrary, however 8 bits was initially a good fit since it was able to easily fit all letters, upper and lower case, plus all punctuation and numerals. A Byte is no longer a hard boundary, however. There are many protocols that use individual bits, or groups of 4 bits, or any number really. Modern processors also use 32-bit "words" and 64-bit "words".
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.
1 Byte is 8 bits
One byte is usually 8 bits, but some computer systems used a 9-bit byte. A bit is a Binary digit. (0 or 1) And a nibble is a 4-bit byte. Sometimes used in simple machines su…ch as washing machine or toaster. Back in early telegraphy days, paper tape was used for machine telegraphy. Its data was represented by 5 holes that could be punched across the width of a paper tape. Thus one could have 25 (= 32) characters. This became supplanted by paper tape with 8 possible holes in a row. Thus 28 different characters could be represented. (256 characters). A version of this was called ASCII code, American Standard Code for Information Interchange. And the electro-mechanical Teletype was the apparatus commonly used. This was in the (relatively recent) days before alpha-numeric symbols on an CRT screen. Anyway, hence the 8-bit Byte.
1 kilobyte = 1024 bytes. 1024 bytes * 8 = 8192 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).
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.
