Q: How many MB in a GB

A:

Depends whether you are counting in decimal or binary

Humans count by decimal GB - 1 GB = 1000 MB

Computers count by binary GB - 1 GB = 1024 MB and 1 MB = 1024 KB

"The usage of the word "gigabyte" is ambiguous: the value depends on the context. When referring to RAM sizes and file sizes, it traditionally has a binary definition, of 1024^3 bytes.

For general definitional purposes, it means exactly 1000^3 bytes, since the prefix "giga-" refers to 1000 "megas". In order to address this confusion, currently the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) promotes the use of the term "gibibyte" for the binary definition. "
