## Megabytes Definition

Megabyte (MB) is a unit of stored or transferred digital information. Under the decimal system (SI), one MB is the equivalent of 1 million bytes.

Under the binary system, 1 megabyte is 220 B, which comes to 1,048,576 bytes.

In today’s world, megabytes commonly refers to the amount of information stored or transferred when it comes to smaller files, such as JPEG, PNG image, MP3 file, and similar.

```Megabyte in SI and base 10 (decimal)
1 Megabyte = 10002 bytes
1 Megabyte = 1 million bytes
Megabyte in base 2 (binary)
1 Megabyte = 220 bytes
1 Megabyte = 10242 bytes
1 Megabyte = 1.049 million bytes (1,048,576 bytes)```

## Gigabytes Definition

Gigabyte (GB) is one of the most commonly used units with respect to measuring the size of digital information. It’s used in the sense of what amount of information is being stored or transferred. The term gigabyte, or GB, is used widely in info tech (IT) and computer technology.

GB is typically used to measure the size of computer memory or to indicate the size of a file (musicmovieshow, or any type of digitally stored information), computer RAM, and so forth.

A single-layer DVD can generally store up to around 5 GB at the most. A Blu-ray disc can store up to around 25 GB.

A gigabyte is equal to 1 billion bytes.

But in computer science, the value of 1 GB is considered to be equal to 230 or 10243 bytes. This is equal to about 1.07 billion bytes (1,073,741,824 bytes, to be precise).

```Gigabyte in SI and base 10 (decimal)
1 Gigabyte = 10003 bytes
1 Gigabyte = 1 billion bytes
Gigabyte in base 2 (binary)
1 Gigabyte = 230 bytes
1 Gigabyte = 10243 bytes
1 Gigabyte = 1.074 billion bytes```

### How to Calculate Megabytes (MB) to Gigabytes (GB)

Here’s how to calculate MB to GB under base 10:

```Megabyte in SI

1 Megabyte = 10002 bytes
1GB = 10003 bytes, therefore:
1 byte = 1000-3 GB

Hence:
1 Megabyte = 10002 * 1000-3 GB
1 Megabyte = 1000-1 Gigabytes
1 Megabyte = 0.001 Gigabytes```

### MB to GB in Base 2

Here’s how to calculate MB to GB under base 2:

```Megabyte in base 2

1 Megabyte = 220 bytes
1 Megabyte = 10242 bytes
1 byte = 1024-3 GB
1 Megabyte = 10242 * 1024-3 GB
1 Megabyte = 1024-1 Gigabytes
1 Megabyte = 2-10 Gigabytes
1 Megabyte = 0.0009765625 Gigabytes
```
