How much is 1 byte, kilobyte, megabyte, gigabyte and terabyte? These are very jargon to me when I joined a computer class back in a town. These people are asking questions using those terms and I just wrote it down since I am not understanding those.

Can anyone explain what these terms are?

Hi,

Here is a very simple guide for you. These bytes those guys are talking about are either file sizes, storage space size or any size a computer will use or store. So its like a computer term for measurement; kilo, grams, kilograms etc.

lets start with this:
 
Bytes(has 8bits), there is 1,024 bytes in 1 Kilobytes(KB), there is 1,024KB in 1 megabyte(MB), there is 1,024MB in 1 gigabyte(GB) and there is 1,024 GB in 1 Terabyte(TB), there are more higher bytes, but those are the common terms being used.
 
**For example, for a photo or picture file, 3MB file size is already a very big file for a picture, its usually 300-600KB. These sizes usually depends on what the file is.
