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

GB = MB / 1000

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

FORMULA

Gigabyte = Megabyte / 1000

STEP 1

Gigabyte = Megabyte x (1 / 1000)

STEP 2

Gigabyte = Megabyte x 0.001

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

1. = 10 / 1000
2. = 10 x (1 / 1000)
3. = 10 x 0.001
4. = 0.01
5. i.e. 10 MB is equal to 0.01 GB.

(Result rounded off to 40 decimal positions.)

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

#### 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.

#### Definition : Gigabyte

A Gigabyte (GB) is a unit of digital information that is equal to 1,000,000,000 bytes (or 8,000,000,000 bits) and commonly used to measure the storage capacity of computer hard drives, flash drives, and other digital storage devices. It is also used to express data transfer speeds and in the context of data storage and memory, the binary-based unit of Gibibyte (GiB) is used instead.
