Megabyte is a multimedia processing device that is widely used in information and data technology, it is transmitted or stored. SI is equivalent to a megabyte of 1,000,000 bytes. Almost 1 megabyte is also used as 220 B, that is 1,048,576 octets. The quantity of measured information is currently used to show the size of a standard MP3 file, the size of the image, etc.
A byte is the fundamental computer science data storage measuring unit. It is a storage unit composed of 8 bits in several computing devices.
Since a large part of the software and electronics industries uses machine memory in base two rather than 10, the binary figures use SI prefixes amounts while the data storage system manufacturers use the SI values.
