# How to Convert Kilobyte to Megabyte (kB to MB) ?

Kilobyte (KB) and Megabyte (MB) are the most common units used to measure digital storage capacity. Sometimes, we may require converting from KB to MB or vice-versa. Let us analyse the steps.

One Kilobyte (kB) is equal to 1,000 Bytes. It is 1000^1 or 10^3 Bytes.

1 kB = 1 x 1000 = 1,000 Bytes

Whereas , there are 1,000,000 Bytes in 1 Megabytes, calculated as 1000^2 or 10^6 Byes.

1 MB = 1 x 1000 x 1000 = 1,000,000 Bytes

Therefore, value of 1 MB in kB is calculated as..

1 MB = ( 1 x 1000 ) x 1000 = 1 kB x 1000 = 1000 kB

From the above, we can convert Kilobytes to Megabytes by dividing by 1000.

MB = kB / 1000

And similarly convert Megabytes to Kilobytes by multiplying with 1000.

kB = MB * 1000

You can use below tools to quickly convert from Kilobytes to Megabytes and vice versa.
