Number of Kilobytes in a Megabyte

How many Kilobytes are there in a Megabyte?


The prefix kilo, as defined by the International System of Units (SI), stands for a thousand (103); the prefix mega, in its turn, designates a million (106). Accordingly, there would be 1,000 kilobytes in a megabyte. Be that as it may, measurements in digital information are based on binary values instead of decimal ones ‘“ that’â„¢s the reasoning followed by the JEDEC memory standards, where the prefix kilo designates 210 (or 1,024) and mega represents 220 (or 1,048,576).
