Bytes to Bits Conversion Table

 B  =  8 bit

How to convert from Bytes to Bits

Since 1 byte is equal to 8 bits, we could say that n bytes are equal to 8 times n bits. In other words, we could use the following formula:

bits = bytes x 8

For example, let's say that we want to convert 2 bytes to bits. Then, we just replace bytes in the abovementioned formula with 2:

bits = 2 x 8

That is, 2 bytes are equal to 16.0 bits.
