# What is the biggest byte?

###### Answered 2012-03-07 05:09:18

The official prefixes only go as high as 1024 or 280 bytes.

1000 Multiples

Bit = 1 Binary Digit

Byte = 8 Bit

Kilobyte = 103 bytes = 1000 bytes

Megabyte = 106 bytes = 1000 kilobytes

Gigabyte = 109 bytes = 1000 megabytes

Terabyte = 1012 bytes

Petabyte = 1015 bytes

Exabyte = 1018 bytes

Zettabyte = 1021 bytes

Yottabyte = 1024 bytes

1024 Multiples

For sequential numbers based on 1024 (210) instead of 1000 :

Bit = 1 Binary Digit

Byte = 8 Bit

Kibibyte (kilo-binary-bytes) = 210 byte = 1024 bytes

Megabyte = 220 bytes = 1024 kibibytes

Gibibyte = 230 bytes = 1024 mebibytes

Tebibyte = 240 bytes

Pebibyte = 250 bytes

Exbibyte = 260 bytes

Zebibyte = 270 bytes

Yobibyte = 280 bytes

The terabyte is the largest byte and equal to 1024 gigabytes.

the biggest you'll see in a store is terabytes, but i think the biggest possible is a yottabyte (idk how much it is)

Exabyte is the biggest unit in the list of units mentioned by you.

The biggest number that can be represented in one byte is 11111111. Binary numbers have the ability to added together in a fashion similar to decimal numbers.

It is aZotzabyte. Before a zotzabyte is a geobyte, before that is a brontobyte, before that it is a yottabyte.

I believe you meant difference between a bit and a byte. A byte is 8 bits.

MB is Mega Byte GB is Giga Byte and Ghz is Giga hurtz. (and for all I know is that MB is the smallest and Ghz is the biggest. and correct me if my spelling is wrong sorry) ^++++++++++^

Nobody knows what you are talking about, but if you mean what the biggest number is in a byte, it is 255 or 127. The former is only for unsigned, while the latter is the maximun if the byte is signed. If you mean how many numbers can be represented, it is 256 or 128. Again, the former is if it is unsigned and the latter is if it is signed.

a killer byte a megger byte a giger byte a nano byte a secto byte

Here it is the unit of data measurements: 8 bit = 1 byte 1024 byte = 1 Kilo byte 1024 kilo byte = 1 Mega byte 1024 Mega byte = 1 Giga byte 1024 Giga byte = 1 Tera byte Now, 1 Tera byte = 1024 * 1024 Mega byte

It is UART and USART instead of URAT and USART. The biggest difference between URAT and USART is that UART sends data byte by byte. USART sends data in blocks and can send a clock with the data.

Byte, since there are 8 bits in every byte

Byte is a noun, not a verb - there is no past tense for it.

they are amounts of unit describing computer storage

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)

if this question about no. of bytes in one kilobyte then answer is 1024 byte.

The order of the bytes go in - Byte (B), Kilo byte (KB), Mega Byte (MB), Giga Byte (GB), Terra Byte (TB)

There is not built-in 'byte' type in C, but you can define it: typedef unsigned char byte; byte bmin=0, bmax=255;

A GB is a giga byte, which is larger than a MG or mega byte. A mega byte is 10 to the 6th power, a giga byte is 10 to the 9th power. A giga byte then goes into a mega byte .66666 times. If you need how many mega bytes into a giga byte, it's 1.5.
