The numbers would be the char representation of the byte.
I initially thought it would be much bigger if the byte array was converted into char representation. It would be 2 - 4 times bigger.
I got confused because I don't how bytes are actually stored or used..?
I think another example where I think about this is if I had an image file and then I converted it to a byte array, then a string representation and then wrote it to a text file, the text file would be bigger.
