Now let us apply the above formula and, write down the steps to convert from Kibibyte (KiB) to Mebibyte (MiB).

1. STEP 1 → Mebibyte = Kibibyte / 1024
2. STEP 2 → Mebibyte = Kibibyte x (1 / 1024)
3. STEP 3 → Mebibyte = Kibibyte x 0.0009765625

If we apply the above steps, conversion from 512 KiB to MiB, will be processed as below.

1. = 512 / 1024
2. = 512 x (1 / 1024)
3. = 512 x 0.0009765625
4. = 0.5
5. i.e. 512 KiB is equal to 0.5 MiB.

(Result rounded off to 40 decimal positions.)

#### Definition : Kibibyte

A Kibibyte (KiB) is a unit of digital information that is equal to 1024 bytes (or 8,192 bits) and is defined by the International Electro technical Commission(IEC). The prefix "kibi" is derived from the binary number system and it is used to distinguish it from the decimal-based "kilobyte" (KB). It is widely used in the field of computing as it more accurately represents the amount of data storage and data transfer in computer systems.

#### Definition : Mebibyte

A Mebibyte (MiB) is a unit of digital information that is equal to 1,048,576 bytes (or 8,388,608 bits) and is defined by the International Electro technical Commission(IEC). The prefix "mebi" is derived from the binary number system and it is used to distinguish it from the decimal-based "megabyte" (MB). It is widely used in the field of computing as it more accurately represents the amount of data storage and data transfer in computer systems.
