The formula of converting the Bit to Gibibyte is represented as follows :

GiB = Bit / (8x10243)

Now let us apply the above formula and, write down the steps to convert from Bit (b) to Gibibyte (GiB). This way, we can try to simplify and reduce to an easy to apply formula.

FORMULA

Gibibyte = Bit / (8x10243)

STEP 1

Gibibyte = Bit / (8x1024x1024x1024)

STEP 2

Gibibyte = Bit / 8589934592

STEP 3

Gibibyte = Bit x (1 / 8589934592)

STEP 4

Gibibyte = Bit x 0.000000000116415321826934814453125

Example : If we apply the above Formula and steps, conversion from 10 Bit to GiB, will be processed as below.

1. = 10 / (8x10243)
2. = 10 / (8x1024x1024x1024)
3. = 10 / 8589934592
4. = 10 x (1 / 8589934592)
5. = 10 x 0.000000000116415321826934814453125
6. = 0.00000000116415321826934814453125
7. i.e. 10 Bit is equal to 0.00000000116415321826934814453125 GiB.

(Result rounded off to 40 decimal positions.)

You can use above formula and steps to convert Bit to Gibibyte using any of the programming language such as Java, Python or Powershell.

#### Definition : Bit

A Bit (short for "binary digit") is the basic unit of information in computing and digital communications. It is a binary value, meaning it can have one of two values=> 0 or 1. Bits are used to represent data in computers and other electronic devices. They are the building blocks of digital information, and are used to store, transmit, and process data.

#### Definition : Gibibyte

A Gibibyte (GiB) is a unit of digital information that is equal to 1,073,741,824 bytes (or 8,589,934,592 bits) and is defined by the International Electro technical Commission(IEC). The prefix "gibi" is derived from the binary number system and it is used to distinguish it from the decimal-based "gigabyte" (GB). It is widely used in the field of computing as it more accurately represents the amount of data storage and data transfer in computer systems.
