    Our transfer rate is 420 bits per 35 ms. Our conversion factors are

    1\mathrm{\ kilobit\ (kb)} = 1024\mathrm{\ bits\ (b)}, and

    1\mathrm{\ second\ (s)} = 1000\mathrm{\ milliseconds\ (ms)}.

    So,

    \frac{420\mathrm{\ b}}{35\mathrm{\ ms}} = \frac{420\mathrm{\ b}}{35\mathrm{\ ms}}\cdot\frac{1\mathrm{\ kb}}{1024\mathrm{\ b}}\cdot\frac{1000\mathrm{\ ms}}{1\mathrm{\ s}}.

    Notice that all the units cancel out except for the kb on top and the s on the bottom.
