There isn't a direct relation between packets and bytes, a packet can consist of 1 byte or a couple of thousand bytes, it depends on the protocol and what is being transmitted.

Actually, there is a relationship between packets and bytes. Packets are made up of bits of data. Bits can be converted to bytes.

For more info check on data (network) packets may I suggest using google and doing some research.

I am the captain of my soul.

OK, I phrased that badly, yes there's a connection between packets and bytes, but not a 'multiplication factor' because it is a variable, unlike bits and bytes which are a fixed relationship.
