## What is Gigaoctet?

gigaoctet, (Go) GB, the ~ Noun. ‐ A unit of computer memory equal to 1,024 megabytes (1,024 1,048,576, [230] bytes).

## What is a hex octet?

Octets can be represented using number systems of varying bases such as the hexadecimal, decimal, or octal number systems. The binary value of all eight bits set (or activated) is 111111112, equal to the hexadecimal value FF16, the decimal value 25510, and the octal value 3778.

**How many numbers does an octet have?**

You can represent any octet with 3 digits in decimal(base 10), and also, with 3 digits in octal (base 8). an octet is 8 bits of information.

### How many byte is a hex?

8 bits

Tech Stuff – Hexadecimal, Decimal and Binary

Numbering System | Base | Notes |
---|---|---|

Hexadecimal | base 16 | Each Hexadecimal character represents 4 bits (0 – 15 decimal) which is called a nibble (a small byte – honest!). A byte (or octet) is 8 bits so is always represented by 2 Hex characters in the range 00 to FF. |

### How many bits are in hexadecimal?

four bits

Software developers and system designers widely use hexadecimal numbers because they provide a human-friendly representation of binary-coded values. Each hexadecimal digit represents four bits (binary digits), also known as a nibble (or nybble).

**Is octet same as byte?**

In computers, an octet (from the Latin octo or “eight”) is a sequence of eight bit s. An octet is thus an eight-bit byte . Since a byte is not eight bits in all computer systems, octet provides a nonambiguous term.

## What is difference between octet and byte?

In computers, an octet (from the Latin octo or “eight”) is a sequence of eight bit s. An octet is thus an eight-bit byte . Since a byte is not eight bits in all computer systems, octet provides a nonambiguous term. This term should not be confused with octal , a term that describes a base-8 number system.

## What is the largest hexadecimal number?

The number 2,147,483,647 (or hexadecimal 7FFFFFFF16) is the maximum positive value for a 32-bit signed binary integer in computing.

**Who is the founder of octet rule?**

This observation, published in separate papers (1916) by the German chemist Walther Kossel and the American chemist Gilbert Newton Lewis, is known as the rule of eight, or octet rule, and is used to determine the valence, or combining capacity, of several chemical elements.
