True is that a kilobit is 1024 bits, as I said a computer uses binaries and not the decimal system:

1, 2, 4, 8, 16, 32, 64, 128, 256, 512, 1024 etc. this are the possible meausures. This is also the reason why the memory canīt have for example 50Mb or 100Mb. meausures that you can divide through 10 are always rounded!
