How many bytes are in a megabyte?

Byte is the basic unit of digital information in computer storage and processing. A byte contains very little information and it consists of 8 bits


1 Byte = 8 bits

1 Bytes = 0.000001 MB (in decimal)

1 Bytes = 0.00000095367432 MB (in binary)


Megabyte (MB) is another unit of digital information, which is widely used in computer technology. A megabyte contains one million bytes of digital info. 


1 Megabyte = 1,000,000 Bytes (in decimal)

1 Megabyte = 1,048,576 Bytes (in binary)


As you can see, there are one million bytes in a megabyte in base 10. Also there are 1,048,576 bytes in a megabyte in base 2. That means a megabyte is one million times bigger than a byte.
