#### Worksheet Overview

In this activity, we will convert between different units of digital information.

A byte (B) is a unit of digital information.

Here are the conversions

1,000 B (Bytes) = 1 KB (Kilobytes)

1,000,000 B = 1 MB (Megabyte)

1,000,000,000 B = 1 GB (Gigabyte)

Let's have a look at a typical question.

Example

Convert 9 GB to B

1,000,000,000 B = 1 GB (Gigabyte)

There are 1 billion bytes in a GB

So, 9 GB = 9 x billion B

= 9,000,000,000 B

How do you feel about these conversions? Are you ready to have a go at some questions?
