Based on the provided diagram and steps outlined earlier, the formula for converting the Megabit (Mbit) to Gigabit (Gbit) can be expressed as follows:

diamond CONVERSION FORMULA Gbit = Mbit ÷ 1000

Now, let's apply the aforementioned formula and explore the manual conversion process from Megabit (Mbit) to Gigabit (Gbit). To streamline the calculation further, we can simplify the formula for added convenience.

FORMULA

Gigabits = Megabits ÷ 1000

STEP 1

Gigabits = Megabits x (1 ÷ 1000)

STEP 2

Gigabits = Megabits x 0.001

Example : By applying the previously mentioned formula and steps, the conversion from 1 Megabit (Mbit) to Gigabit (Gbit) can be processed as outlined below.

1. = 1 ÷ 1000
2. = 1 x (1 ÷ 1000)
3. = 1 x 0.001
4. = 0.001
5. i.e. 1 Mbit is equal to 0.001 Gbit.

Note : Result rounded off to 40 decimal positions.

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

### Unit Definitions

#### What is Megabit ?

A Megabit (Mb or Mbit) is a decimal unit of digital information that is equal to 1,000,000 bits and it is commonly used to express data transfer speeds, such as the speed of an internet connection and to measure the size of a file. In the context of data storage and memory, the binary-based unit of mebibit (Mibit) is used instead.
