(Basic Unit)

The formula of converting the Gibibit to Byte is represented as follows :

Bytes = Gibit x 10243 / 8

Now let us apply the above formula and, write down the steps to convert from Gibibit (Gibit) to Byte (B).

  1. STEP 1 → Byte = Gibibit x 10243 / 8
  2. STEP 2 → Byte = Gibibit x (1024x1024x1024) / 8
  3. STEP 3 → Byte = Gibibit x 1073741824 / 8
  4. STEP 4 → Byte = Gibibit x 134217728

If we apply the above steps, conversion from 42 Gibit to Bytes, will be processed as below.

  1. = 42 x 10243 / 8
  2. = 42 x (1024x1024x1024) / 8
  3. = 42 x 1073741824 / 8
  4. = 42 x 134217728
  5. = 5637144576
  6. i.e. 42 Gibit is equal to 5,637,144,576 Bytes.

(Result rounded off to 40 decimal positions.)
