# Is a GB (Gigabyte) bigger than a MB (Megabyte)?

The answer is yes.

Megabyte is a multiple of the unit byte for digital info with prefix mega (10^{6}). The unit symbol of megabyte is MB. 1 megabyte consists of one million bytes of information. In binary base, one megabyte is equal to 1,048,576 bytes.

Gigabyte is a multiple of the unit byte for digital information with prefix giga (10^{9}). The unit symbol of gigabyte is GB. 1 gigabyte consists of 1,000,000,000 bytes of digital info. In binary base, one gigabyte is equal to 1,073,741,824 bytes.

1 Megabyte is considered to be equal to 0.001 gigabytes in decimal and 0.0009765625 gigabytes in binary system.

1 Gigabyte is considered to be equal to 1000 megabytes in decimal and 1024 megabytes in binary system.

As you can see, 1 Gigabyte is 1000 times bigger than a Megabyte. So, **a GB is bigger than a MB**.

no= 1gb =1024mb so to get the mb we have to multiply gb by 1024 mb

It is rare to find a bilingual techy who is 1.) so fluent in both techy and non-techy languages AND 2.) who realizes the true depth of our cluelessness, that they can actually translate ALL the way down to our level. KUDOS TO YOU WHOEVER YOU ARE!

Thank You for giving us a clear and straight answer instead of providing us numbers and letting us figure it out. It is Really appreciated.
