Infotech Homes explains what a bit is, its different uses, and how this **computer** unit can be calculated.

## What is a Bit?

In computing, a value of the binary number **system** is called a bit (English acronym is for Binary Code, that is, “binary digit”). This system is called that because it comprises only two values, 1 and 0, with which an infinite number of binary circumstances can be represented: on & off, present & absent, true & false, etc.

A bit is the minimum unit of information used by computing, whose systems are all based on said binary code. Each bit of **data** represents a specific value: 1 or 0, but by merging different bits, many more combinations can be gained, for example:

## 2-Bit Model (4 Combinations):

- 00 – Both off
- 01 – First off, second on
- 10 – First on, second off
- 11 – Both on

With these two units, we can represent four-point values. Suppose we have 8 bits (an octet), equivalent to a byte in some systems: we obtain 256 different values.

In this way, the binary system operates by paying care to the value of the bit (1 or 0) and its position in the signified chain: if it is on and appears in a place to the left, its value is doubled, and if it appears to the right, it is cut in semi. For example:

### To denote the number 20 in binary code

**Binary net value:**1 0 1 0 0**Numerical value:**168421**Binary Outcome:**16 + 0 + 4 + 0 + 0 = 20

### Example: To signify the number 2.75 in binary, assuming the location in the middle of the number:

**Binary net value:**0 1 0 1 1**Numerical value:**4210,50,25**Binary Outcome:**0 +2 +0 +0.5 + 0.25 = 2, 7 5

Bits with a value of 0 (off) are not counted, only those with a value of 1 (on), and their numerical equal is given based on their position in the string, thus making a representation mechanism that will later be applied to alphanumeric characters ( called ASCII ).

In this way, the operations of the computer microprocessors are recorded: there can be 4, 8, 16, 32, and 64-bit architectures. This means that the microprocessor manages the internal number of registers the Arithmetic-Logic Unit’s calculation capacity.

For example, the first x86 series computers (the Intel 8086 and the Intel 8088) had 16-bit processors, and the clear difference between their speeds had to do not so much with their processing size but with the additional help of a 16 and 8-bit bus, individually.

Similarly, bits are used to measure the store capacity of a **digital** memory.
