A byte is a number in the range from 0 to 255 (256 possible values). A byte is a number in the range from 0 to 255 (256 possible values). This is an unsigned number because all possible values are positive. A signed byte is a number in the range is -128 to 127 (256 possible values). With signed numbers the first bit is reserved for the +/- sign. Now the highest value of a signed byte is 127, so 127+1 = -128. For a single bit there is two possible values: 0 and 1. With two bits the first bit can again be 0
