Q:A:### Quick Answer

**Measured in binary, a 1 terabyte hard drive has 1,048,576 megabytes of storage space.** Hard drive storage space is calculated in bits, and 8 bits of data are in 1 byte; 1,024 bytes equals 1 kilobyte, and 1 terabyte equals 1,099,511,627,776 bytes.

Although operating systems read the amount of space in a hard drive using the binary method, computer storage manufacturers generally market their hard drives' unformatted capacity in decimal mathematics. Using this method to calculate capacity, an unformatted 1-terabyte hard drive can store 1,000,000 megabytes of data. The International Electrotechnical Commission has introduced the new binary prefixes "mebi," "gibi" and "tebi" to resolve the discrepancy, although they are seldom used.

## How many billions are in a trillion?

A:

Full Answer >**One trillion is 1,000 billions.**One trillion is a one followed by 12 zeros, whereas one billion is a one followed by nine zeros. To add three zeros, multiply one billion by the number with three zeros, which happens to be 1,000.Filed Under: - Q:
## How many zeros are in a million?

A:There are six zeros following the one in one million. One million is written as 1,000,000 or in exponential form as 1 x 10^6, which means that it is equal to 10 x 10 x 10 x 10 x 10 x 10.
