### Megabit-Megabyte?

What the heck is all this Mb, MB, Kilobyte, ETC all about, confusing isn't it. Here is a break down of it and the numbers they represent, these numbers really only apply to Computers, such as the size of a Harddrive or the amount of RAM a stick has and now days how much Random Access Memory "RAM" is on a Graphics Adapter. Also such things as the Sony ipod, actually all MP3 players have harddrives now days, even your Cellphone stores music and photographs.

#### Hopefully this makes sense.

• Mb= Megabit
• MB=Megabyte
• M= Million ( it is actually 1048576, it is figured in Binary)
• b= 1 bit
• B= 1 Byte which is 8 bits
• Kilo= 1000 ( but in Computer Talk it is actually 1024, it is figured in Binary)
• Kilobit or Kb= 1024 bits
• Kilobyte or KB= 8192 bits, ( remember it takes 8 bits to make 1 byte )(divide this number by 8 = 1024 Kilobytes)
• Megabit or Mb= 1048576 bits
• Megabyte or MB= 8388608 bits, (divide this number by 8 = 1048576 Megabytes)
• Gigabit or Gb= 1073741824 bits
• Gigabyte or GB= 8589934592 bits, (divide this number by 8 = 1073741824 Gigabytes)
