A megabyte is larger than a kilobyte. All digital measurements are based on bytes, and it takes more bytes to make a megabyte than a kilobyte. More »

There are 1,024 kilobytes in 1 megabyte. Computers use a binary system for storage and memory. This system uses binary digits known as bits. Each bit is either on or off, so it can either be a zero or one. More »

A kilobyte is smaller than a megabyte, since one megabyte contains 1,024 kilobytes. In digital storage, 1 kilobyte can hold two to three paragraphs of text, while 1 megabyte holds more than 800 pages of text. More »

While all three are units of memory storage on a computer, a kilobyte (KB) is smaller than a megabyte (MB) and a MB is smaller than a gigabyte (GB). There are 1,024 bytes in 1 KB, 1,024 KB in 1 MB and 1,024 MB in 1 GB. More »

A MB, which is an abbreviation for a megabyte, is bigger than a KB, which is an abbreviation for a kilobyte. A megabyte is commonly understood to be equivalent to one million bytes, where a byte is equal to eight bits. W... More »
