Based on the provided diagram and steps outlined earlier, the formula for converting the Byte (B) to Megabyte (MB) can be expressed as follows:

diamond CONVERSION FORMULA MB = Byte ÷ 10002

Now, let's apply the aforementioned formula and explore the manual conversion process from Byte (B) to Megabyte (MB). To streamline the calculation further, we can simplify the formula for added convenience.


Megabytes = Bytes ÷ 10002


Megabytes = Bytes ÷ (1000x1000)


Megabytes = Bytes ÷ 1000000


Megabytes = Bytes x (1 ÷ 1000000)


Megabytes = Bytes x 0.000001


Example : By applying the previously mentioned formula and steps, the conversion from 1 Byte (B) to Megabyte (MB) can be processed as outlined below.

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

Note : Result rounded off to 40 decimal positions.

You can employ the formula and steps mentioned above to convert Bytes to Megabytes using any of the programming language such as Java, Python, or Powershell.
