THREE SYTES (BITES) = OCTET

3 + MITES ( B+, A+, A-)_______ and 3 - MITES( B-, A-, A+)

The hexahedral octet is 3 sytes, more specifically 3 bites. It is one eighth octahedron (above the equator) and one quarter tetrahedon (below the equator) face bonded. Four OCTETS form a CUBE:

Eight OCTETS form a RHOMBIC DODECAHEDRON:
