three byte

1. Alternatively called a three byte, a triplet is a byte of three bits instead of the standard eight bits. This byte is sometimes used in quantum physics computers.

2. With a hexadecimal number, a triplet describes a group of three hexadecimal numbers. For example, "0000FF" is an example of a triplet hexadecimal color code used in HTML (hypertext markup language) to represent a light blue color. This triplet is divided into three sections: red, green, and blue. In other words, this color is made up of '0' red, '0' green, and '255' blue to make up the color blue.
