# Convert 260 gbytes to gbits

In this article I will show you how to convert 260 gigabytes into gigabits. Throughout the explanation below I might also call it 260 gbytes to gbits. They are the same thing!

## How to Convert Gigabytes to Gigabits

A gigabyte is greater than a gigabit. I know that a gbytes is greater than a gbits because of something called conversion factors.

Put very simply, a conversion factor is a number that can be used to change one set of units to another, by multiplying or dividing it. So when we need to convert 260 gigabytes into gigabits, we use a conversion factor to get the answer.

The conversion factor for gbytes to gbits is:

1 gbytes = 8 gbits

Now that we know what the conversion factor is, we can easily calculate the conversion of 260 gbytes to gbits by multiplying `8` by the number of gigabytes we have, which is 260.

260 x 8 = 2080 gbits

So, the answer to the question "what is 260 gigabytes in gigabits?" is 2080 gbits.
