The only thing you'll need to know is that 8 bit is one byte.
It's not common to calculate file sizes using bits, but it is possible: a 10MB file is 80megabits.
You could also calculate the connection in bytes: 2 megabit is 2/8 = 0.25 megabyte/s.
80megabits at 2megabits/s
10megabytes at 0.25megabytes/s
