How many bytes are required to encode n bits of data where n equals
We have to find the how many bytes of data required to n bits of data
where n is equal to.
Each byte is equal to 8 bits and less than 8 bits will also require one byte.
so we must have byte required to encode the 7 bits of data.
Step 2 :
17 is divided by 8 the number of bits in a bytes
.’. 3 bytes are required to encode the 17 bits of data.
