A contraction of “binary” and “digit”, a bit is a number used in a digital information system. A bit is easy to deal with in electronic terms, having only two values, 0 and 1, alternatively expressed as “off” and “on”; “low” and “high”, or “absence of voltage” and “presence of voltage”. Bits are commonly grouped into binary “words” or bytes.
