The formula of converting the Bit (b) to Kilobit (kbit) is represented as follows :

kbit = Bit ÷ 1000

Now let us apply the above formula and see how to manually convert Bit (b) to Kilobit (kbit). We can further simplify the formula to ease the calculation.

FORMULA

Kilobits = Bits ÷ 1000

STEP 1

Kilobits = Bits x (1 ÷ 1000)

STEP 2

Kilobits = Bits x 0.001

If we apply the above Formula and steps, conversion from 17 Bit (b) to Kilobit (kbit) will be processed as below.

1. = 17 ÷ 1000
2. = 17 x (1 ÷ 1000)
3. = 17 x 0.001
4. = 0.017
5. i.e. 17 Bit is equal to 0.017 kbit.

Note : Result rounded off to 40 decimal positions.

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

#### 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.

#### Kilobit

A Kilobit (kb or kbit) is a decimal unit of digital information that is equal to 1000 bits. It is commonly used to express data transfer speeds, such as the speed of an internet connection and to measure the size of a file. In the context of data storage and memory, the binary-based unit of Kibibit (Kibit) is used instead.

### Excel Formula to convert from Bit (b) to Kilobit (kbit)

### Python Code for Bit (b) to Kilobit (kbit) Conversion

You can use below code to convert any value in Bit (b) to Bit (b) in Python.

bits = int(input("Enter Bits: "))
kilobits = bits * (1 / 1000)
print("{} Bits = {} Kilobits".format(bits,kilobits))

The first line of code will prompt the user to enter the Bit (b) as an input. The value of Kilobit (kbit) is calculated on the next line, and the code in third line will display the result.
