What is meant by gigabyte, megabyte, GB, and MB?

Gigabyte (GB) and megabyte (MB) are units of measurement for digital storage capacity. A gigabyte is equal to 1 billion bytes, while a megabyte is equal to 1 million bytes.

GB and MB are often used to measure the size of files, hard disks, memory cards, USB sticks and other storage media. For example, a music file can be a few megabytes in size, while a high-definition video can be several gigabytes.

Typically, a gigabyte is 1024 megabytes, although some systems use a variation where a gigabyte is defined as 1000 megabytes.

It is important to distinguish between gigabytes and gigabits because gigabits is a unit of measurement for data transfer rate, while gigabytes is a unit of measurement for storage capacity. One gigabit is equal to 1 billion bits, while one gigabyte is equal to 8 billion bits.
