How do you determine the headers and trailers when calculating how long it would take to transmit data?

I'm trying to figure out how long it would take to send 1000 bytes of data if you have a bandwidth of 1mbps, but I want to take headers and trailers into account. However, I don't know to do this without being explicitly told what the headers and trailers are. Or maybe my approach is just wrong?

Can anyone help out? I posted on r/learnprogramming but found this which seems to be more fitting. If there's somewhere better to go, please tell me. Thank you.
