Hey guys, I have math problems

There's this thing I know is probably simple, but I just can't figure it out. I need to calculate how long it will take to reach X when I know Y per second.
Easy example:
I know I want 1000 Kb (X) and I download, say, 50 Kb per second (Y) - how do I calculate how long it'll take to reach X?

Wouldn't X divided by Y give you the answer?

How about 20 seconds --> 1000/50 = 20

Yep, just google 1000Kb / 50Kbps.

Xhi, he said Kilo bits for both. But maybe you are right and he meant 1000 Kilo Bytes at a speed of 50 Kilo bits/sec. http://www.bing.com/search?q=1.....-SearchBox

Sorry needed capital K. My point was easy to figure out by typing into Google. Easy to tell whether to divide or multiply because if you multiply you get Bits/Bytes squared per second which is obviously not what you want.
