how long will it take to download a 7gb file at 300kb/s....i cant for the life of me work it out
Xbox Live GT: A7X Dan 09

Only Playing Gears Of War 2 ATM
300kb/s = 37.5kB/s

7GB = 7,340,032KB
You don't exactly need be a genius to figure that out.

maybe a few hours i guess. 7 gb is huge. probably about 6- 6 and a half hours.

Maths genius? or high school graduate.
I'll tell you if you learn to spell genius properly.
Considering some bad rounding pertaining to converting, my math comes to around six and a half hours.

But then again, with the fact that rarely to never does a computer download something at a constant rate, who the fuck knows how long it'll take?
407 minutes. or 6.7 hours. How hard was that?

300kb/s = 37.5kB/s

7GB = 7,340,032KB

7,340,032 / 37.5 = 195,734.187s

195,734s = 3,262.23333 min

3,262 min = 54.3666667 hr

54 x 60 = 3,240

3,262 - 3,240 = 22

~ 54 hr 22 min

hm...
If I was wrong, then I apologize for my criticism.

I don't think the conversion of the kb was necessary. There's no difference between kb and KB... it's (b - B - kb - mb - gb)

Isn't that right?

i think you did something wrong. there's no way it should take that long.

Makes sense to me.
6.79 hours should be about right.

Other people may be going by 300kB/s, but he said kbps, so I've converted it to 37.5kB/s.

There's a big difference between bits(b) and bytes(B).
1 byte = 8 bits
7gb ~ 7,000,000 kb

7000000/300 = 23333.33 seconds

= 388 minutes
= 6.5 hours roughly

This + it's plural, ergo, genii.

You, fine sir, have impeccable taste.

Ahhhh Yuck Fou.
Well, I can download at 94.14 MB/s, so hah. How long would it take me to download that same file, to rub it in TS's face?

Edit:

A file size of 94.14 megabytes can also be expressed as 0.09193 gigabytes.
7 divided by 0.09193 = 76.1448929.

TS will take 6 hours and 30 minutes.

I win.

Bitch.

I write songs.

Depends on which meaning of genius you use. A group of people having excetional intellect, a group of people with high intelligence and a group of people who strongly influence are geinuses.

A group of genii is a group of genius- also a word for genie, a guardian spirit or the two spirits (good and bad) that accompany someone through life.
I feel sorry for TS, my connection is so much faster. :P
