Byte is the basic unit of digital information transmission and storage, used extensively in information technology, digital technology, and other related fields. It is one of the smallest units of memory in computer technology, as well as one of the most basic data measurement units in programming. The earliest computers were made with the processor supporting 1 byte commands because in 1 byte you can send 256 commands. 1 byte consists of 8 bits, which go together as one unit in the storage, processing, or transmission of digital information.
Bit (b) is a measurement unit used in binary systems to store or transmit data, like internet connection speed or the quality scale of an audio or a video recording. A bit is usually represented with a 0 or a 1. 8 bits make 1 byte. A bit can also be represented by other values like yes/no, true/false, plus/minus, and so on. A bit is one of the fundamental units used in computer technology, information technology, and digital communication, as well as for storing, processing, and transmitting various types of data.
