Question Drain size question

Can someone tell me if the drain size is the same for a toilet as it is for a bathtub. We want to move our toilet to were the bathtub is located. Will it work with the drain that is there or do I need to change things.

You'll have to change things. Toilet requires minimum 3" and 4" is better. I think tubs can be 1-1/2 and showers have to be 2".

Handyman is correct; the current drain is not going to be sufficient.
