How many MEGS are in 15 GB?


well this is a stupid question, but I'm not very good with math. I have 15GB bandwidth, and just wanted to know how many Megs this is? Is it 150 megs?

Without being all technical with the 1024 bytes, etc...


Kilo = 1 thousand (1,000 bytes)
Mega = 1 million (1,000 kilobytes)
Giga = 1 billion (1,000 megabytes)

so 15 GB = 15,000 MB

(again I'm not being technical with the 1024 bytes = kilo)

Most hosts as well as HDD manufacturers use 1000 now anyway just so they can oversell so I think your comparison is fairly good.

Google can help with this. Go to google and type in 'MB in 15 GB' and you'll get 15360 as EH-Stevo said. Just another useful feature.

Is doing 15x24 in your head that hard? Takes me all of like 2-3 seconds, so it can't take that long for people not good in math.

Pretty simple really, just break it into pieces...

10x24 .... I mean seriously who can't do this one quickly?
5x24 ... after doing the one above, it really shouldn't be hard to do this one.
Add them together what do you get? 360.

So the point being, why not use the proper 1024 when your dealing with bytes instead of propogating the lies that the HD manufacturers want you to believe?

1 KB = 2^10 bytes = 1024 bytes
1 MB = 2^20 bytes = 1024 KB = 1,048,576 bytes
1 GB = 2^30 bytes = 2^10 MB = 1024 MB = 1,048,576 KB = 1,073,741,824 bytes

15 GB = 15x2^30 bytes = 15x2^10 MB = 15,360 MB = 16,106,127,360 bytes

2^10 = 1024

That's how they get it.
