The conversion diagram provided below offers a visual representation to help you better grasp the steps involved in calculating Megabit to Megabyte in a simplified manner.

÷ 8   
  x 8  

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

diamond CONVERSION FORMULA MB = Mbit ÷ 8

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


Megabytes = Megabits ÷ 8


Megabytes = Megabits x (1 ÷ 8)


Megabytes = Megabits x 0.125


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

  1. = 1 ÷ 8
  2. = 1 x (1 ÷ 8)
  3. = 1 x 0.125
  4. = 0.125
  5. i.e. 1 Mbit is equal to 0.125 MB.

Note : Result rounded off to 40 decimal positions.

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