I need to write a function to convert a one or two digit number into a single byte starting with 1. Can someone please explain what I need to do?

Im doing serial port communication with an external device. Basically I want to send the address command "12" to the device, or in byte form starting with a 1 it would be 10001100. In the notes for the protocol it says the address should be "1 byte, 0-127 must add 128 to indicate as address".

Just wondering how I should calculate the bytes to send?
