How to Convert Megabyte to Gigabyte (MB to GB) ?

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

One Megabyte (MB) is equal to 1,000,000 Bytes. It is 1000^2 or 10^6 Bytes.

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

Whereas , there are 1,000,000,000 Bytes in 1 Gigabytes, calculated as 1000^3 or 10^9 Byes.

1 GB = 1 x 1000 x 1000 x 1000 = 1,000,000,000 Bytes

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

1 GB = ( 1 x 1000 x 1000 ) x 1000 = 1 MB x 1000 = 1000 MB

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

GB = Value in MB / 1000

And similarly convert Gigabytes to Megabytes by multiplying with 1000.

MB = Value in GB * 1000

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