    Thank you for using the Jiskha Homework Help Forum.


    8 bits = 1 Byte
    1024 Bytes = 1 Kilobyte
    1024 Kilobytes = 1 Megabyte
    1024 Megabytes = 1 Gigabyte
    1024 Gigabytes = 1 Terabyte
    1024 Terabytes = 1 Petabyte

    There has been an argument among disk manufacturers and consumers about what a Gigabyte is, manufacturers call 1000 megs a gig, but Mac OS (and windows) say that 1024 megs are a gig, so formatted sizes are different, this really annoys people, and has been the subject of some very heated threads.
