# 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.

Megabytes (MB) and Gigabytes (GB) are units of digital data storage used to measure the size or capacity of files, documents, media, and storage devices. The main difference between them lies in their scale:

Megabyte (MB): One megabyte is equal to 1,000 kilobytes (KB) or one million bytes. It is typically used to describe smaller files or storage capacities. Common examples of files that might be measured in megabytes include small documents, images, and short audio recordings.

Gigabyte (GB): One gigabyte is equal to 1,000 megabytes or one billion bytes. It is a larger unit and is used to describe bigger files and storage capacities. Common examples of files measured in gigabytes include high-resolution photos, videos, music albums, and software applications.

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 = MB / 1000

And similarly convert Gigabytes to Megabytes by multiplying with 1000.

MB = GB x 1000
