Kilobytes and megabytes are the units which are units of digital data; the data is heaping everywhere every day unimaginable information is processed. This data can be stored somewhere and kilobytes and megabytes are the units of data in which we measure the amount of data we have, suppose we have a file which has a size of 2 megabytes then we can say that we can get in total a 2 megabytes of data, this is the way we do with data measurement.

## kilobytes to megabytes

A kilobyte is a moderate level of unit of data measurement which is equal to 1024 bytes. Generally, documents and text files are in terms of kilobytes.

One kilobyte has 1024 x 8 bits. This is that when we have considered kilobytes in term of bits, a kilobyte is an ancient unit of data.

Megabytes is a next level unit of data measurement a megabyte is equal to 1024 kilobytes; megabyte came into existence when we had a moderate level of internet expansion. These days megabyte is the most used unit.

You can check that your photos and your songs are in terms of a megabyte,

**Conversion **

- One megabyte is equal to 1024 kilobytes, all you have to do is to divide the number of kilobytes by 1024, and you will get the megabyte conversion.
- Suppose that you have 2048 kilobytes dividing the count by 1024 you will get 2 MB, this is the way you can convert kilobytes to megabytes.

**Precaution during conversion. **

- Make a note that while you are converting the process while including division and unit conversion.
- Make a check that you are using the right equivalent of kilobytes to megabytes
- Make a check that you are doing the process and calculation correctly.
