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

GiB = KiB / 10242

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

FORMULA

Gibibyte = Kibibyte / 10242

STEP 1

Gibibyte = Kibibyte / (1024x1024)

STEP 2

Gibibyte = Kibibyte / 1048576

STEP 3

Gibibyte = Kibibyte x (1 / 1048576)

STEP 4

Gibibyte = Kibibyte x 0.00000095367431640625

If we apply the above Formula and steps, conversion from 256 KiB to GiB, will be processed as below.

1. = 256 / 10242
2. = 256 / (1024x1024)
3. = 256 / 1048576
4. = 256 x (1 / 1048576)
5. = 256 x 0.00000095367431640625
6. = 0.000244140625
7. i.e. 256 KiB is equal to 0.000244140625 GiB.

(Result rounded off to 40 decimal positions.)

#### Definition : Kibibyte

A Kibibyte (KiB) is a unit of digital information that is equal to 1024 bytes (or 8,192 bits) and is defined by the International Electro technical Commission(IEC). The prefix "kibi" is derived from the binary number system and it is used to distinguish it from the decimal-based "kilobyte" (KB). 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.

#### 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.
