If you are talking about a person named KB and MB - you need to put them together and compare otherwise all the answers above are correct!

there is the measley byte. there are 1000 bytes in a kilobyte (KB) there are 1000 kilobytes (KB) in a MegaByte (MB). A byte is about one thirty-five thousandth or 1/35000 of an MP3 song.

MB is larger.

1 KB is 1024 bytes.
1 MB is 1024 KB.

1MB is larger than 1KB. It's similar to the metric system in that Killo is less than Mega which is less than Giga... etc.

Each successive prefix is multiplied by 1024 (2^10) rather than the 1000 (10^3) used by the SI prefix system (also called scientific notation used in the metric system). Thus:

kilo (k/K) = 1,024
mega (M) = 1,048,576
giga (G) = 1,073,741,824
tera (T) = 1,099,511,627,776
peta (P) = 1,125,899,906,842,624
exa (E) = 1,152,921,504,606,846,976
zetta (Z) = 1,180,591,620,717,411,303,424
yotta (Y) = 1,208,925,819,614,629,174,706,176

Note: Hard drive manufactures traditionally have used the prefixes to mean the same thing they mean in the metric system (i.e. 1000bytes as 1K, 1000000 = 1M, etc.) However it still holds that 1M is bigger than 1K.

kb is 1024 bytes
mb megabyte = 1 million bytes
1 byte = 1 character, including spaces

a Mega byte is 10 times bigger than a KB.

MB are bigger, just like GB are bigger than MB.

Just think of Kilo being small, Mega being large, and Giga being huge, and then there is TB, but I won't get into that right now.

1 MB= 1,024 KB
1 GB= 1,024MB

MB - megabyte - 1 MB is 1,000,000 bytes

kB - kilobyte - 1kB is 1,000 bytes

Therefore a megabyte is larger than a kilobyte. It takes 1,000kB to make 1MB.

MB is Lager

Quantities Bytes

Kilo Byte = 1024 Bytes

Mega Byte = 1024 Kilo Bytes

Giga Byte = 1024 Mega Bytes

Tera Byte = 1024 Giga Bytes

Peta Byte = 1024 Tera Bytes

Exa Byte = 1024 Peta Bytes

zetta byte = 1024 Exa Bytes

yotta byte = 1024 Zetta Bytes

Good Luck! Keep Smiling
