How to Convert Kilobyte to Megabyte?

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 = Value in KB / 1000

And similarly convert Megabytes to Kilobytes by multiplying with 1000.

KB = Value in MB * 1000

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