How to Convert Megabyte to Gigabyte?

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.
