What does the computer term bytes mean?
8 bits form a byte. For example to store ASCII characters. Other language encodings need more bytes, e.g., Asian languages. A single bit of course is a 0 or 1 meaning a base2 system. Hence 8 bits or a byte can represent 2 to the power of 8 combinations.

Answer . Can't say I've heard it...\n. \nAre you sure it's a computer term?\nAre you spelling it correctly?.
Bytes is a memory description in computer terminology, a computer language is something totally different than terminology. A byte is 8 bits long, a bit is a space for an on o…r off setting - 0 or 1. A byte has 8 of these in a row - 10100101 or 11111111 or 00000001. A byte can be used to count in binary from 0 to 255 (00000000 to 11111111).
bytes are the computer term to measure how much data is used to create a document. For instance 8 bits equal a byte and one alpha letter is a byte. So if you have a 500 word p…aper then count all the letters and that is how large your paper is in computer bytes.
the term GB what does it mean the term MB what does it mean the term MHz what does it mean the term KB what does it mean the term bytes what does it mean ? i see the terms on …my computer and i would like the defnition of each one.
A byte is a unit of data on a computer that usually represents eight bits and is used to represent an integer between 0 and 255, a Hexadecimal expression, or one of a few thin…gs that are a single character on a computer.

a byte is a 8 bit mathematical representation of a unit of data, aka a word or character.
A byte is the unit of storage on a computer. As far as I know, I think there are 4 types of bytes. A single byte, a Mega Byte, a Gigabyte(GB), and a Macro Byte(MCB)
It is used in programming to denote the name of an object
Where data can be stored.
FTW is an acronym that stands for "For the Win." It used to mean, "F*ck the world," but that meaning is becoming less and less popular.
No, It is the unit for digital information
A bit is the smallest amount of information that a computer can store; all bits are in the form of either a 1 or a 0, which in mechanical terms is equivalent to on or off. A b…yte is a collection of 8 bits which together can be used to define an alphanumerical term, which is a letter or a number. Bits are only used to construct bytes. The bytes are then used to contruct all other programs and data storage.
A megabyte is one million bytes, each byte being a sequence of 8 bits, which is enough information to represent one character of alphanumeric data.
