You mean write it as an integer or what?2 MiB (2 megabytes, as seen in OSes, erroneously with the "MB" suffix, where the base is 1024) can be expressed as "2 * 1024 * 1024".2 MB (2 megabytes, as seen on HDD offers, where the base is 1000) can be expressed as "2 * 1000 * 1000".2 Mbit (2 megabits, as seen on ISP offers, where the base is 1000, except that the measurement is in bits, not bytes) can be expressed as "(2 * 1000 * 1000) / 8" (the "/ 8" is used to convert the value from bits to bytes).
