Bits & BytesBits...Computers operate using Binary Code, which is a Base 2 numbering system where any binary digit, or "bit", can only be a 1 or 0. We are more familiar with our decimal, Base 10, numbering system where any digit can be 0  9.
(5 x 10,000) + (6 x 1,000) + (3 x 100) + (5 x 10) + (7 x1) = 56,357
128 + 0 + 0 + 16 + 0 + 0 + 2 + 1 = 147 ...and Bytes1 Byte = 8 Bits
