### What are one byte letters?

1 byte = 8 bits.
Computers only know two things. On (1) and off (0). This is
known as binary. Computers use an 8bit binary system
(00000000).
The American Standrad Code for Information Interchange (ASCII)
is an international code that notices that an 8bit character ASCI
covers everything that you can type on a keyboard.
Therefore a 1byte letter is A to Z.

### What is the largest prime number that can be stored in 8 bit computer?

An 8 bit number is a maximum of 255, the highest prime number
less than or equal to this is 251 or 11111011
Ans 2.
The above is correct for the largest prime storable in a
single 8bit storage location.
However the question asked what can be stored in an 8bit
computer. Anyone working with numbers would tend to program an
8bit computer to use more than one location to store each
number.
In fact, since we are talking of prime numbers there is a
simple, fast algorithm to store primes very compactly, and recover
them quickly and easily. 32KB of RAM can hold all the primes less
than 95,000 with room to spare for the compaction and decompaction
algorithms.
A 1GB memory will hold all the primes less than 3 x 1010 .

### Difference between 16 and 8 bit microprocessor?

n-bit microprocessor means how many bit can a microprocessor can
process i.e as the operations.8bit means that microprocessor can
process only 8bit addition , subtraction etc as in case.16 bit can
process data of 16bit for any kind of operation to be
performed.naturally the greater the number of bits to be processed
the good it is.
an eg of 8bit-8085
an eg of 16bit-8086

###### Asked in Computers

### What do you mean by 8bit?

Bits, go back to when binary code was in function. If you don't
know what binary code is... al give you an example.
0100000101000110 ect ect
a bit, is described as 1 digit in a binary equation. so if
something was 4 bit, it would have 4 digits of binary code.
0100
1000
0010
0001
0101
ect...
So if some is described as 8 bit... it basically means that
processor has 8 digits in the binary equation.
Now why does the number of digits matter ?
Binary, was a really old was of processing scripts or codes...
when you refer to 8 bit game consoles, they normally have
pix-elated graphics and were not too technological in game play.
This is because 8 bits is a fairly small digit, and the amount of
different codes you can make is only small. Now we have 32bit and
64bit computers. This makes the possibility of the amount of codes
to process endless. Making computers to be alot more advanced in
how much it can do.
