For example: the number 42 has 2 digits. The number 5 has 1 digit. What number has 0.25 digits?

A normal Bits Per Pixel is 8, 16, or 32. Sometimes it can be 1, 2, 4, or 24. It is never a fraction.

Maybe 0.25 is actually the dot pitch of a CRT monitor or something like that?

**EDIT:** Oh I see, it's a compressed video stream. Ok, in that case maybe you could have a compression ratio of 4 pixels to 1 bit or 0.25 bits per pixel.
