What are bits and satoshis?

One of the great functions of bitcoins is that they are literally able to be divided into 100 million pieces.

When a bitcoin is divided into 1 million pieces, it is called a bit.

When a bitcoin is divided into 100 million pieces (or a bit is divided into 100 pieces), it is called a satoshi (named after the original creator of Bitcoin).
