It occupies 5 bytes.

Byte size=(7+2+1)/2 = 10/2 =5 bytes.

To calculate the number of bytes from the PIC, add 1 (for the sign) to the total number of digits, divide by 2, and round up if necessary.

Hope this helps.

THE SIZE OF S9(7)V9(2)

COUNT TOTAL BYTES : 1+7+2 = 10

IF IT IS EVEN THEN N/2 OTHERWISE N+1/2.

HERE, IT WILL TAKE 5 BYTES.
