How many byte make up one bit? The value is 0.125.

### Bit or byte

The byte serves as the primary non-SI unit for storing data on computers.

8 bits make up one byte.

**Note**: Rounding errors could happen, so make sure to constantly double-check the results.

### Bits & Bytes

Bits and bytes are units of measurement used in digital information.

A bit is the smallest unit of digital information and can have a value of either 0 or 1. It represents the basic building block of all digital communication and computing systems.

A byte is a unit of digital information that consists of eight bits. Bytes are commonly used to measure the size of files, storage devices, and memory capacity.

To put it simply, a byte is made up of 8 bits. So, for example, a file that is 10,000 bytes in size is equivalent to 80,000 bits (10,000 x 8).

### Character

In digital information storage, a character refers to a single unit of information that represents a letter, number, punctuation mark, symbol, or any other textual element. Characters are used to represent human-readable data in digital form and are commonly encoded using various character encoding schemes.

In the most common encoding scheme, ASCII (American Standard Code for Information Interchange), each character is represented by a unique 7-bit binary number, which can represent up to 128 different characters. The ASCII scheme includes characters such as uppercase and lowercase letters, digits, punctuation marks, and control characters.

### Gibibyte

A gibibyte (GiB) is a unit of digital information storage that is equal to 2^30 bytes or 1,073,741,824 bytes. It is a binary multiple of the byte, meaning it is based on powers of 2 rather than powers of 10.

The prefix "gibi" comes from the words "giga binary" and is used to differentiate between decimal prefixes, such as gigabyte (GB), which is based on powers of 10 and represents 10^9 bytes.

Gibibytes are commonly used to measure the size of computer memory, hard drives, and other storage devices. For example, a hard drive with a capacity of 500 gigabytes would be equivalent to approximately 465.66 gibibytes (500,000,000,000 bytes divided by 2^30).

### Gigabit

Gigabit is a unit of digital information storage or transmission. It is equal to 1024 megabits, 1048576 kilobits, or 1073741824 bits

### Gigabyte

Gigabyte is a unit of digital data storage. It is equal to 1024 megabytes, 1048576 kilobytes, or 1073741824 bytes

### Kibibyte

A kibibyte (KiB) is a unit of digital information storage that is equal to 2^10 bytes or 1,024 bytes. It is a binary multiple of the byte, meaning it is based on powers of 2 rather than powers of 10.

The prefix "kibi" comes from the words "kilo binary" and is used to differentiate between decimal prefixes, such as kilobyte (KB), which is based on powers of 10 and represents 1,000 bytes.

Kibibytes are commonly used to measure the size of computer memory and other storage devices. For example, a memory chip with a capacity of 4 megabytes (MB) would be equivalent to approximately 3,906.25 kibibytes (4,000,000 bytes divided by 2^10).
