Below conversion diagram will help you to visualize the Kilobit to Kilobyte calculation steps in a simplified manner.

÷ 8
Kilobit [kbit]
Kilobyte [kB]
x 8

The formula of converting the Kilobit (kbit) to Kilobyte (kB) is represented as follows :

kB = kbit ÷ 8

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

FORMULA

Kilobytes = Kilobits ÷ 8

STEP 1

Kilobytes = Kilobits x (1 ÷ 8)

STEP 2

Kilobytes = Kilobits x 0.125

If we apply the above Formula and steps, conversion from 5 Kilobit (kbit) to Kilobyte (kB) will be processed as below.

1. = 5 ÷ 8
2. = 5 x (1 ÷ 8)
3. = 5 x 0.125
4. = 0.625
5. i.e. 5 kbit is equal to 0.625 kB.

Note : Result rounded off to 40 decimal positions.

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

#### 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.

#### Kilobyte

A Kilobyte (kB) is a decimal unit of digital information that is equal to 1000 bytes (or 8,000 bits) and commonly used to express the size of a file or the amount of memory used by a program. It is also used to express data transfer speeds and in the context of data storage and memory, the binary-based unit of kibibyte (KiB) is used instead.
