# Int to Byte

I wish to convert an int to a byte in Java. How does this work?

+12

Let me try to give the simple formula: Byte ranges between -128 and 127 inclusive. When int is assigned to the value between -128 to 127 inclusive, the conversion to the byte of that number will remain the same. If int is less than -128, we just add than number with 256 to convert into byte. If int ranges between 128 to 256 inclusive, that number will be deducted with 256. If the number is greater than 256, We will divide that number with 256 and take the reminder...

ints are 8 bytes long: 2*2*2*2*2*2*2*2*2 = 256 byte is one byte long signed/negative numbers start from max to zero, opposite of positives positives: 0, 1, 2, 3, 4 .... negatives: 256 (or 0), 255 (or - 1), 254 .... negatives are represented as reverse positive in memory

256-120=136 (2s complement rule)

Valen.H. ~ nice answers tnx :)

What is a int?

Seems there is one extra 2: 2*2*2*2*2*2*2*2*2 = 256 really it's 512

If int is less than -128, we just add than number with 256 to convert into byte. If int ranges between 128 to 256 inclusive, that number will be deducted with 256. If the number is greater than 256, We will divide that number with 256 and take the reminder...

Valen.H. ~ system how to do it? for example: int 136 is equals to byte -120

Integer? I have a lot to learn here

Endorey The set of integers, denoted Z, is formally defined as follows: Z = {..., -3, -2, -1, 0, 1, 2, 3, ...} int size is 16bits, means between -32768 , +32767

deepak sharma Valen.H. ~ Endorey Ahmed Mustafa i find easy solution for caculate it mentally, for example: 8666 to byte-> 8666%(modulus) 256 = 218 and now 218 - 256 = -38 byte :) edit: this is for 256 and bigger

Ahmed Mustafa finally i think your formula is complete.❤❤❤

int i1 = 10; byte b1 = (byte) i1

If you want to convert data type int to byte using the cast operator int val; byte val1=(byte)val; this parentheses inside you given which data type you want to convert this easy way to convert the data type.
