## B to MB - Conversion Formula and Steps

Byte and Megabyte are units of digital information used to measure storage capacity and data transfer rate. Byte is one of the very basic digital unit where as Megabyte is a decimal unit. One Byte is equal to 8 bits. One Megabyte is equal to 1000^2 bytes. There are 1,000,000 Bytes in one Megabyte. - view the difference between both units Source Data UnitTarget Data Unit

The formula of converting the Byte to Megabyte is represented as follows :

MB = Byte / 10002

Now let us apply the above formula and, write down the steps to convert from Byte (B) to Megabyte (MB). This way, we can try to simplify and reduce to an easy to apply formula.

FORMULA

Megabyte = Byte / 10002

STEP 1

Megabyte = Byte / (1000x1000)

STEP 2

Megabyte = Byte / 1000000

STEP 3

Megabyte = Byte x (1 / 1000000)

STEP 4

Megabyte = Byte x 0.000001

Example : If we apply the above Formula and steps, conversion from 10 Byte to MB, will be processed as below.

1. = 10 / 10002
2. = 10 / (1000x1000)
3. = 10 / 1000000
4. = 10 x (1 / 1000000)
5. = 10 x 0.000001
6. = 0.00001
7. i.e. 10 Byte is equal to 0.00001 MB.

(Result rounded off to 40 decimal positions.)

You can use above formula and steps to convert Byte to Megabyte using any of the programming language such as Java, Python or Powershell.

#### Definition : Byte

A Byte is a unit of digital information that typically consists of 8 bits and can represent a wide range of values such as characters, binary data and it is widely used in the digital world to measure the data size and data transfer speed.

#### Definition : Megabyte

A Megabyte (MB) is a unit of digital information that is equal to 1,000,000 bytes (or 8,000,000 bits) and commonly used to express the size of a file or the amount of memory used by a program. It is also used to express data transfer speeds and in the context of data storage and memory, the binary-based unit of mebibyte (MiB) is used instead.
